Tim,

OPNQRYF will run to completion before your program runs. I'd guess that
you forgot to OVRDBF with SHARE(*YES) before the OPNQRYF. Do you appear
to be reading the base file instead of the OPNQRYF access path? Or
perhaps you're reading the OPNQRYF access path twice and are receiving
no records the second time? Try using POSDBF to position the database
cursor to the first record. Those are the two gotchas that seem to
strike most often with OPNQRYF.

Just a wild guess...

Pete
