× The internal search function is temporarily non-functional. The current search engine is no longer viable and we are researching alternatives.

 Here is one example:

                      OUTFILE(A/B C *RPLMBR)   

Or you can specify this in the *QRYDFN itself, e.g.: under "Select output type 
and output form":

                          Define Database File Output                           
 Type choices, press Enter.                                                     
   (The printed definition shows the output file record layout.)                
   File . . . . . . . . .   CHMOUTP        Name, F4 for list                    
     Library  . . . . . .     CHMDEMO      Name, F4 for list                    
   Member . . . . . . . .   *FILE          Name, *FIRST, *FILE, F4 for list     
   Data in file . . . . .   1              1=New file, 2=Replace file           
                                           3=New member, 4=Replace member       
                                           5=Add to member                      
   For a new file:                                                              
     Authority  . . . . .   *USE           *LIBCRTAUT, authorization list name, 
                                           *CHANGE, *ALL, *EXCLUDE, *USE        
     Text . . . . . . . .   ChangeMaster Delete Older Versions output file

Notice options 4 and 5 for "Data in file" above...

Hope that helps?
