Michael, 
Here is the select and FD. 
In this example I would copy the source file into the CARDIN file in QTEMP.

CL source
CRTPF FILE(QTEMP/CARDIN) RCDLEN(80)
CPYF FROMFILE(QCARDSRC) TOFILE(QTEMP/CARDIN) FROMMBR(CARDMBR)
FMTOPT(*CVTSRC)



COBOL source
FILE-CONTROL.                                
                                             
    SELECT CARD-IN ASSIGN TO DATABASE-CARDIN 
        ORGANIZATION IS SEQUENTIAL.          
                                             
DATA DIVISION.                               
FILE SECTION.                                
FD CARD-IN.                                  
01 CARD-IN-RECORD               PIC X(80).

Jerry,

Thanks for the suggestion. What does the SELECT for that file look like in
