To be more specific - when a record is updated/deleted in one file I
must update records in a second file.

These files should both reside in the same library but they may or may
not be the files currently in the library list.  Doug Handly described
using the library name from the trigger buffer and doing an OVRDBF /
Useropen of the file in RPGLE.  How does this compare performance wise
with using a 'C' program which can do a qualified file open ?
