If you need to use _Ropen to open a file containing BLOBs, UDTs, and (yes)
datalinks then please contact me offline at bvining@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Your current approach of simply using undocumented options also means you're
working in an unsupported environment from an IBM point of view. Assuming
that you want your code to be supported I can help you along that path. Note
that, as I'm sure you've found, opening is not the same as using :)

and have not so far been able to find a way of doing this.

I recently managed to get _Ropen to allow me to open files containing BLOBs
and SQL UDTs by means of the (apparently undocumented?) open options
"lobptrs=Y, sqludt=Y", which I stumbled across in Google, but so far I've
not found anything equivalent that allows the use of datalinks. I guess at
"datalink=Y" and "dlink=Y" but no joy.

Anyone know the answer?
