i thought ddm and icf were two different things.

when we tried ddm, we set up file overrides to the remote system.  and response 
went down
the drain.  in the override, how do you tell it to only send back a piece of 
data.  i
thought the whole idea was the file was accessed just like it was a local 

we switched to the source/target programming method, where the source program 
aquire the correct system, send the request, the data was created on the target 
and then received back via icf.
