Yes it is possible.  It depends where the file you are overriding (CONGRESS) is
in your library list.  If the library it is in is above Y2PAYROLL it'll be 
up.  If Y2PAYROLL is above the library that contains the file you are overriding
then it will assume you are trying to override the file to itself and crash.

So yes you are right that it can be done via your library list.  It is not
however possible without your library list because you are unable to qualify the
file being overridden.
