I very seldom use cpyf for much but use the exact same method in opnqry quite often....
I'll write a little clp later today and see what's up with this. That method has always worked quite well.
Paul Nelson is reporting errors using the method, soooo I'm not as sure as I was earlier.
I'll run a test today sometime...

Pat, have you gotten this to actually work? I've used double quotes before in OPNQRYF's QRYSLT with good effect, but can't seem to use them in CPYF like you've suggested.

To get around all those very nasty '''''' and getting the combo to work, create the search string in a variable like this:
dcl &sel *char len(22) value('*if txsuf *eq "xxxxx" ')
more clp stuff
chgvar var(%sst(&sel 16 5)) value(&var5)
Then your statement looks like this:
CPYF FROMFILE(VATTBL) TOFILE(*PRINT) + > INCREL((&sel)))
