I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes
You should package all your SQL in Stored procedures on MS SQL Server and then execute these stored procedures from WebFocus
Something like the following :

SET SQLENGINE = SQLMSS
SQL SQLMSS SET SERVER MyDataSource ;
SQL SQLMSS EX  dbo.WF_GetData ;

TABLE FILE SQLOUT
PRINT *
ON TABLE HOLD AS HDATA
END

Thanks!

SET SQLENGINE = SQLMSS
SQL SQLMSS SET SERVER we put in server name ;
SQL SQLMSS EX  we put in stored procedure;

TABLE FILE SQLOUT
PRINT *
ON TABLE HOLD AS HDATA
END

However, nothing returned

As a test, please create a very basic stored procedure with just a simple SELECT and execute this from WebFocus
