Thanks for all your input on this.  With your aid I have
figured out how to do it.

What I am doing is in my initial trigger program I am checking
a data area to see if I'm in here already. If it's set on, I exit.
Other wise I set it on and continue.

At this point I grab the &Library &File and &Member names and then
do a smbjob to the second half of my trigger program.

The submitted half then tries to lock the file.  Since I'm not in the
same job, I can do this now.  After I succussfully lock the file I
Send it using SNDNETF, Unlock the file, and set the data area back
to an off state.

So far works like a charm in test environment.  Using UPD to add 
records to the file.  Now I gotta make sure it works well with

Thanks again,

Jim Langston
