Ü  WRKQRY

·         It acts as a query builder where we can make our query based on the options provided.

·         It is used to access records of selected format of selected member of a file and to save the selected query result in a query file.

·         Once the query is saved we can change it, display the result of it and also can copy it.

 

Below is the File CUST for which we will see how to make use of WRKQRY.
