Did you create the program also?  If not, the program may be using the
authority of the user that created it.  Using DSPPGM <program name>, check
the "User profile" and "Use adopted authority" parameters.  If it's adopting
the authority of the *OWNER and the owner has no rights to your file, that
is your problem.

Hope that helps.

I created a file.  If I clear the file (clrpfm) from the command line, all
is well.

If I call a program from a command line that clears this file, I get an
error message saying that I am not authorized.
