    This function is being provided in IBM i 7.3 TR9 and 7.4 TR3 as an SQL table function rather than a CL command.
    The new table function, DATA_QUEUE_ENTRIES can be used to quickly and easily display the contents of a data queue.
    A table function is well suited to display the data queue contents because it does not have the same column limitations that a command would have when displaying a data queue with message data length that exceeds the width of the display. It also has powerful selection and ordering capabilities built-in using SQL.
