Issue/Introduction

When creating a query in SQL for CA Datacom, is it possible to have the results ordered by a column that is not in the SELECT clause?

Environment

Component : CA DATACOM SQL

Component : CA DATACOM/DB

Component : CA DATACOM/AD

Resolution

At this time (in Version 15.1), it is not possible to have an ORDER BY clause use a column that is not in the SELECT clause. In application programs or by using other utilities, it is possible to manipulate a result set that includes the ordered column within the SELECT, but it cannot be done directly using SQL code.
