Hello, Chris. It's rather simple.
Let's take an example. Let's have a classical couple of PF: order details
and order headers. 
Here it is their structure: 
Order header (ORDERSH)
Order number, sequence number (always zero), customer code, date , and so
on. 

Order details (ORDERSD)
Order number, sequence number (never zero), item code, quantity, and so on.

We can declare an LF as follows:
ORDERS.LF
        R    RHEAD    PFILE(ORDERSH)
        A    K    ORDNBR
        A    K    SEQNBR
        R    RDETLS    PFILE(ORDERSD)
        A    K    ORDNBR
        A    K    SEQNBR
You may then access the file as you like best. 
It's that ok ?  
Ciao
Domenico Finucci
