Move on from Query/400

What is Query/400?


Query/400 is a native IBM i data access tool. Business users request reports from a query developer (programmer, technical person - someone who understands the database), who creates and runs the query. The query gets data from the DB2 database.

Then, the data comes back to the end user in a spooled file, display, or physical file, and it's up to the business user to find a way to analyze the information.
