It doesn't work if your file is Input only.  Only if its Update.
To get around this,  Have an externally defined D/S (Using that file
as the defining file),   and then do a CLEAR on the D/S name.
This will have the same effect.   I can't justify why it doesn't 
work for Input Only.

P.S. It would work for your Printer File Format Name though.
