Did you mean withOUT naming all of the fields?
Sure you can!
Will this work?
CPYF FROMFILE(*LIBL/myFile) TOFILE(QTEMP/myFile) FROMRCD(1) MBROPT(*REPLACE) CRTFILE(*YES)
Runsql 'UPDATE qtemp/myfile set company# = ''2'''
CPYF FROMFILE(QTEMP/myFile) TOFILE(*LIBL/myFile) FROMRCD(1) MBROPT(*add)
Should do the trick.

Yes. I thought I could get away with naming all of the fields.

You mean like
INSERT INTO MYTABLE
(select 2, colb, colc, cold, cole, colf, colg from mytable)

I have several different files that all contain a company#. I want to use
SQL to write a new record for every record in the file but change the
company number to 2. All of the other fields remain the same.
I know it's possible but I'm having a hard time googling. I'm guessing
need an insert into with another select?
