Hello all,
Look at this program:
For all you smart people just FFW to the MAIN QUESTION AREA below.
F***************************************************************** 
F*                                                                 
F*   PROGRAM NAME: TESTFUPD3                                       
F*   DESCRIPTION:  UPDATE JOB                                      
F*   PROGRAMMER:   TIM TRUAX                                       
F*   DATE CREATED: 10/08/1997                                      
F*                                                                 
F*   COMMENT:  TAKE LOW CASE ITEMS AND CONVERT TO UPPER CASE.      
F*                                                                 
F***************************************************************** 
FUSSRCHM IP  E                    DISK                             
FUXSRCHM UF  E                    DISK                             
F            SRCHM                             KRENAMESRCX         

Here are the salient points:
1) Writing program to update (WITHOUT LOCKING) this major file.(USSRCHM)
2) USSRCHM is an actual externally defined file, used heavily during
day.
3) I am only going to be updating about 1000 of the 500,000 records in
this file, therefore I want to only READ every record in the file as
though it was just input.  Then I qualify the record that was only
inputted to determine if it requires updating, then I will use the
trickery of using file named UXSRCHM as my Update/Full file, I will
chain out to this update file (which is really my input file) and only
risk locking 1000 records instead of all 500,000 records.

MAIN QUESTION AREA:

In order to get this program to compile I had to CRTDUPOBJ DUPDATA(*NO)
the USSRCHM file into my library as UXSRCHM, then place an OVRDBF for
UXSRCHM to point to actual USSRCHM file.  Is creating an empty file
object considered proper to getting the program to compile?
