Just want to thank you guys for pointing me in the right direction. DDS is
easy to use, it makes setting up PF-DTA files a breeze.
You guys are great!

In order to do what you want, you will need read up on DDS for physical
files.
It's not very hard to create a basic file with as many fields as you
wish.


crtsrcpf  Yourfile
strseu    (create a source member in Yourfile)
CRTPF     (uses the member created in step 2 as the source)
STRDFU    (use to create/update records in the file)

This will require a little reading on your part but if you get stuck
send a note and somebody will guide you along....
