Add the ovrdbf command to the trigger program and then user control the
opening of the file.  It works but its ugly.

Subject: triggered file list problem

This seems easy and I am sure I will be promptly embarrassed but it has me
stumped at the moment.

I have a file, lets say "FILEMaster", in a Library that is not on the
default library list.  There is also a file, lets say "FILEMAudit", in the
same library.   The FILEMaster file has a trigger attached to it and upon
any change a new record is written to FILEMAudit.

This is all well and good so long as I use a normal application and have the
library list correctly include this library.

However if I use some program outside of the norm, say DFU or ODBC, and
start the job with a qualified name of "Library/FILEMaster" then I get
serious troubles.

Is there a way in the trigger program where I can use a qualified library
