I do not believe QM supports updates.
You should switch to use the RUNSQLSTM.
Run STRQM and take option 10 (Work with Query Manager profiles). Position to the user profile running the QM queries; select option 2=Change.
Scroll to the end of the Change Query Manager Profile display and set ‘Select allowed Query Manager SQL statements’ to ‘Y’=Yes. Press <enter>.
The list that appears allows you to customize the allowed SQL statements for that user profile when QM queries are executed.
