Rob,

I won't say I get OPNQRYF right the first time, every time (why I also use
&QRYSLT).  But I have pretty good luck by typing complex selects in without
any variables, first.  For example:

CHGVAR &QRYSLT ('LSTCHG *GE "XXXXXX" *AND LSTCHG *LE "XXXXXX" *AND RECTYP =
"M"')

Then I strip out the variables, and separate the strings:

CHGVAR &QRYSLT ('LSTCHG *GE "' *cat XXXXXX *cat '" *AND LSTCHG *LE "' *cat
XXXXXX *cat '" *AND RECTYP = "M"')

Which then leads to:

CHGVAR &QRYSLT ('LSTCHG *GE "' *CAT                   +
               &BEGUPD *CAT '" *AND LSTCHG *LE "'     +
               *CAT &ENDUPD *CAT '" *AND RECTYP       +
               = "M"')


(I never did see the problem, BTW, unless LSTCHG was numeric.)
