Here is something I did.  The idea isn't mine, but it worked for me:

0003.00              DCL        VAR(&QSL) TYPE(*CHAR)  LEN(180)          
0004.00              DCL        VAR(&DQ) TYPE(*CHAR)  LEN(1) VALUE('"')  
....
0027.00              CHGVAR     VAR(&QSL) VALUE('ENGTRM *EQ ' *CAT &DQ +       
 0028.00                  *CAT &TERM *CAT &DQ *CAT ' *AND ENGACD *GE ' +        
 0029.00                            *CAT &DQ *CAT &FROMALPH *CAT &DQ +          
 0030.00                           *CAT ' *AND ENGACD *LE ' *CAT &DQ *CAT
+       0031.00                           &TOALPH *CAT &DQ *CAT ' *AND
ENG#CD *GE ' +    0032.00                            *CAT &FROMNUMS  +          
                 

0033.00                       *CAT ' *AND ENG#CD *LE ' *CAT  +                 
 0034.00                           &TONUMS  )                                   
 0035.00    /*        SNDUSRMSG  MSG(&QSL)                             */       
 0036.00    /* NOTE: SHARE(*YES) IS CRITICAL TO OPERATION OF OPNQRYF!!! */      
 0037.00              OVRDBF     ENGRP1 SHARE(*YES)                             
 0038.00              OPNQRYF    FILE((ENGRP1)) FORMAT(*FILE) QRYSLT(&QSL)
+      0039.00                           KEYFLD((ENGRP1/ENGFYR)
(ENGRP1/ENGTRM) +       0040.00                           (ENGRP1/ENGACD)
(ENGRP1/ENG#CD))              


(notice the &QSL field is the piece that makes this work easier.) (notice
the commented SNDUSRMSG statement? That let me see what was actually
happening.)
