fixed

One solution would be as follows:

1. create a externally described data structure based on the file being
triggered.  Obviously FileName would be the name of your file being triggered:

            DFileName      e ds                  extname(FileName)

2. update the data structure with the following statements using the IBM 
supplied
trigger buffer data stucture in QSYSINC:

        Eval       FileName = %subst(qdbtb:qdbnro + 1)

3.update the data structure FileName:

       Eval         RcdSts = 'SC04'

4. update the trigger buffer with the data structure FileName:

        %subst(qdbtb:qdbnro+1:qdbnrl) = FileName

We use this alot so I know it works.

Thanks,
