IIRC If you search the archives, about a year ago or maybe a bit longer this
came up.

Anyway, I was able to find documentation that I could use, so you should
have no problem.

Here's the CL I use:



In the Query definition itself select records looks like this (where field
HODOCO is the selectable field):

Field             Test   Value
HODOCO            EQ     :HODOCO

If you  hit return from here you see a second screen:

Type choices, press Enter.

  Qualifier type . . . .   1

  Query or file  . . . .   DUMMY
    Library  . . . . . .     SEXAXYZ

  For choice 2=File:
    File member  . . . .
Other Query definitions:

Output type is "1" display


And, strangely enough "DUMMY" does not exist as an object on my system.

I hope this helps.
