Title: RE: How To Find Out What Outfile a Query Produces.

Gary Gutherie wrote a clever little utility (using MI) which can retrieve the files used by a query.  Should be on www.news400.com somewhere.

I am involved in a project which has to convert a large number of user
queries into programs, by reserve engineering them.
The problem I have is that many of the queries use files for input that have
been created by other queries.
As there are more than 4000 queries I am having trouble finding which
queries output the file I'm looking for.

Can anyone come up with something that will let me list the details of some
queries (including their output info.) into a file.
I have tried RTVQMQRY, but this only shows you the input file not the
I have also tried printing the queries (with a view to copying the print to
a file I can scan).
Unfortunately printing them all though WRKQRY is taking forever as  this
only allows a couple of pages of queries to be selected for print at a time.

Anyone got any suggestions, as I am at a loss,
