Since it appears that you're creating a flat file, why does it matter what the record format name is? What possible difference could it make?
Please help me understand your predicament.

I fully agree with everything you state.

However, the fact of the matter is that CRTSRCPF CRTPF fopen all can
create files that will have a record format associated with them
(DSPFD). This defaults to the same name as the file.

If I want to rename this entity to something else, I can rename the
file and member names only. I cannot find a way to rename the record
format, (or to name the record format to a different name in the
first place).
