Do you still use DDS to create physical files? Do you create an "extension" file when you need to add a field to an existing file? Are you worried that moving to SQL is too difficult? This session is for you.

Do you need to prevent bad data from from getting into your system regardless of how it's being added? This session is for you. Do you need to mask sensitive data, or protect data from unauthorized users? This session is for you. If you love working really hard, enjoy cryptic column-oriented codes, or the thought of recompiling all your RPG programs gives you a thrill, then maybe this session isn't for you.

Learning Objectives:
1. Convert DDS physical files to SQL tables
2. Add audit fields that are automatically updated
3. Use constraints to ensure data integrity
4. Use Row And Column Access Control (RCAC) to control access to your data
