Somewhere in the documentation, is the information that LABEL ON and related SQL statements do not
respect OVRDBF.

Not really unusual, certain CL commands don't either.

Subject: RE: QMQRY and OVRDBF - has senility set in?

"Overrides only [effectively] apply to /open/ functions; e.g. the file
named in the FROM clause of a SELECT statement should honor a *CALLLVL
scoped override to a named TOFILE()."

Perhaps this is why I'm so sure I've seen this work before. I'm not doing
SELECT statement. This time my QMQRY is doing a "LABEL ON" SQL statement
trying to update the Field Text/Column Headings. Here is the pertinent

The QMQRY SQL "LABEL ON" operation:

LABEL ON "filename"

("FIELD1" IS 'Field Number One
"FIELD2" IS 'Field Number Two
' )

The commands entered and the resulting JOBLOG:

4 > OVRDBF FILE(filename) TOFILE(datalibr/filename) SECURE(*YES)
4 > strqmqry QMQRY(objlibr/qmqryobj)

filename in *LIBL type *FILE not found.

RUN QUERY command failed with SQLCODE -204.

RUN QUERY command ended due to error.

STRQMQRY command failed.
