Hello Tim,

As others have said the member you get is *FIRST which is the chronologically 
first 
member.  The RTVMBRD MBR(*FIRST) command will return the member name.

DSPFD TYPE(*MBR) will provide a chronological list of members.

The file-feedback area within RPG will give you the name of the current member. 
 It 
changes as you move from one member to another when using OVRDBF MBR(*ALL)

Regards,
Simon Coulter.

Subject: Multi-membered file question?
i fellow listers,
If a program processes a multi-membered file (without first setting OVRDBF to 
point to the member to process) what member will be processed?  If it is the 
first member?  Do I determine the first via DSPFD xxxxlib/filename *MBRLIST?
Thanks in advance!
