Thanks but it still is reading a PF instead of the OPNQRYF path.

Any other ideas?

Does an HLL use the OPNID name? Or the FORMAT name?

In the CL below, PGMA is not reading the path built by OPNQRYF. Instead
it is reading physical file JRNFL.

How can I get my PGMA to use the OPNQRYF created path (without using
CPYFRMQRYF due to large record volume)


clof jrnfl
MAPFLD((JOESD '1/joesd' *CALC *N *N +

call PGMA
clof jrnfl

COBOL PGMA file def:

select JRNFL assign to database-JRNFL.
