sorry if I left out a few details....

YES, I am working with a LF, not a PF,
however, I am simply opening the the LF as "OUTPUT" in a
cobol program, so the system issues the QLRCLEAR command to
delete all the records in the file.

this program has ran "as is" for 4 years thru 3 oper/sys release upgrades,
and our TEST system and PROD systems currently are on the
same OS version.

My next step is to "recompile" the program just for the sake of
using current compiler/system edits, and see if its simply an object
outdated problem.

OH.. I did check my job logs.. even have system messaging turned
on in the TEST system. Still no solution.

Thanks for everyones idea's... keepem coming....

Looks like you're trying to work with an LF and a CLRPFM won't work on

I all the years I've used an iSeries, I've never ran across this,

It happens on our TEST machine, but NOT on the Production system.

I've deleted and rebuilt the 1 file that has the error, but no success.
and I'm the only 1 using the file in the TEST system.

Any Idea's ??
