Using DATE in AS400 DDS

I have a request to create a logical file that include records with a transaction date within the last 30 days and omits all others. The the only way I know how to do this would be to auto run a SQLRPGLE job every AM to reset the date and recreate the logical file. Is there any way to do this via DDS?

Would the view need to be dropped and created each day?
