You can qualify the trigger program to a particular library.   However this
is not your problem,   Your problem is the resources(FileMaudit) that the
trigger program uses.     How does the Trigger program find all the
resources it needs.   

A.  The Library List - Best choice over all for flexibliity.
B. Run Qcmdexec or call a CL program from the Trigger program to add the
"Libraries"  Needed.      

Using solution B.  you are Hardcoding the libraries.    What happens if you
have a "Test or Development" version of the files and programs ?
Now you physically have to change the Trigger program to add the "Test"
library names.    Not Good.

Solution A. is the Best.     You know the Golden Rule,     "Get Thy Library
List In Order ! "  .

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
