In this excerpt series, you learn how IBM i handles database files. You also discover the differences between tables and views and between physical and logical files.
By Brian Meyers and Jim Buck
Editor's Note: This article is excerpted from chapter 3 of Programming in ILE RPG, Fifth Edition.
This series examines field reference files and introduces you to the IBM i data types and the storage implications of numeric, character, and date data types. It also covers how to use SQL or DDS to define database files and how to access these files from within RPG programs. In addition, it compares externally described files with program-described files, and it explains externally described device files and how to use DDS to define them.

In the pursuit to modernize, financial institutions are finding themselves in an arms race against cybercriminals to defend their digital frontlines from much more bolder and sophisticated schemes.

However, innovation cannot be stalled with increased market competition as consumers demand faster, more efficient digital experiences. Now the addition of a shifting matrix of regulatory rules that vary across geographies can potentially further slow any progress in the digital transformation journey.
