This may seem like a stupid newbie question (I've done work on the AS400
since 1988 and the S/38 before that), but I have noticed something about the
RUNQRY command that I can not figure out.

If I specify RUNQRY *N logicalfile/library, I would expect that the RUNQRY
command would display the file in the sequence specified by the logical
file, not the arrival sequence of the file, but that is not the case.  It
always seems to use the arrival sequence.  Is this correct?  Can it be
overridden to use the key sequence in the LF.  I know that I can create a
query over the file and just use the RUNQRY command to run the query
defn..... it just seems illogical how the RUNQRY command works.....

What do you guys (that's New York plural for all sexes) think?
