>> Is there a problem with ILE and OVRDBF? Any help would be appreciated. Not if you understand ILE scoping <grin> You do not mention what activation group you specified for the programs. By default CRTPGM will use *New - which is rarely a good idea and never a good idea if you don't mean to do it. Since by default any OVR issued in an ILE AG applies only to that group, none of the COBOL programs will see anything the CL does in this regard. You should really run COBOL programs in a named AG (the compiler defaults to QILE) AND specify the same AG for your CL program. Although Joe's suggestion of using *CALLLVL may work for you - with COBOL you really need to get the AG bit right unless you want other severe problems - like Run Units collapsing when you hadn't issued a STOP RUN etc. Jon Paris Partner400 www.Partner400.com
