  Which is more efficient: "If %Open()" or CLOSE(E) ?

  I suspect the latter. Here's the scenario.  A file will be opened and 
closed potentially about 1,000 times, pointing to different members.


DO    1000



  The only time the CLOSE will receive an error will be during the first 
CLOSE.  So the question is:  Would one error invocation (under the covers) 
be more efficient than 1,000 If %Open() tests?
