In your statement "In prior releases you could use a DBMS SQL Flow to write dialectic specific SQL" do you refer to using data transformation on either source or target to get the final result as RIGHT function would have done?
WebFOCUS 7.7, iWay Data Migrator, Windows Excel, PDF, HTML, XML
Right click on an application directory and select New > DBMS SQL Flow. This special flow type has only a SQL object and target(s). Right click on the SQL object and select Properties to specify your adapter and connection. Then double click to open the SQL object where you can paste or write your DB2 SELECT statement.
Another alternative as you state is to write FOCUS transformations to achieve the same result. In fact in a source transformation could use this syntax to invoke the DB2 RIGHT function SQL.RIGHT(RTRIM(T1.SENDER_ID),3) However this at the cost of disabling automatic pass through (APT) which can adversely affect throughput.
