OVRDBF is a solution.
Use the file name that you have in your select statement instead of CBLFILE.
TOFILE is the real file name.

Subject: [COBOL400-L] Cobol / CL question
Is there a way to pass a variable in CL to 400 Cobol for a file name that is always different?
I haven't used ovrdbf. Is that a possibility?
