**** Novice Question Alert ****

I am trying to get a file description into a library so that I can query
off  it for a file conversion project I am attempting (note: more
questions to follow on that subject).  When I perform a DSPFFD on the
file for display on the screen the command works as advertised.  When,
however, I use the *OUTFILE option my file contains the contents of the
file instead of the file description.

Obviously I have erred.  Below is the command I'm using.  Any insight is
welcome.

QSYS/DSPFFD FILE(ATDBASE/CNTLP) OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) OUTFILE(CNTLPPRT)

Thanks
