What we always did was for each application have a PF library and a LF library.
They followed the naming convention xxPROGP for LF's and xxDATAP for PF's so for
example OEPROGP for Order Entry Logical files and OEDATAP for Order Entry 
Physical
files. That way the xxDATAP's would always be restored before the xxPROGP's. 
For a
logical spanning multiple physicals there are a number of ways to handle that - 
in
this scenario a ZZPROGP library maybe...

Also are you SURE it is actual FILES and NOT those DREADED MEMBERS ??

At my last job we used Silvon's SalesTracker and it was NOTHING for several of
their files to have 10's of thousands of members because it was saving the 
viewing
criteria user used on the assumption it would use that again and not have to
rebuild it. From what we saw, even with HUNDREDS of people using this product - 
no
one ever picked one already defined <BG>...

We also are using a faxing product here that if we don't purge the master file
every so often, our backups bomb. This was my first introduction to that maximum
problem...
