    Although there are not a huge amount of SPL commands, I think it's undoable to discuus them all here. Please ask a more detailed question. Also note the version number of IDS. If it is 9.xx there are a lot more possibilities...;-)

    To get you started here a simple example:

    CREATE PROCEDURE myspl (ptable char(128)) RETURNING integer;
    DEFINE numrows INTEGER;

    select nrows into numrows
    from systables
    where tabname = ptable;

    RETURN numrows;

    EXECUTE PROCEDURE myspl("systables");

    (I hope I did't made any typo's, I haven't really tested the code above;
