I have a CL program which does a WRKSPLF to an outfile, then copies the outfile to a PF.
The CL loops thru each record of the first PF, and copies the splf to a second PF and reads thru this second splf looking for a string. At EOF on the second PF, or when the string is found, I want to process the next record in the first PF.
When I find the string:
if I exit the loop, then attempt to copy the next splf to the second PF, I get an error message the file is locked, even though I've done a CLOF on the second PF.
if I continue reading to EOF, I can copy the next splf to the second PF, but I'm stilled positioned at the EOF. POSDBF is not positioning to the beginnign of the file.
Is there any way around this situation.
I've searched the archives, found where this has been posted before but not a solution. I do see reference to Scott having an explanation to this but I cannot find his explanation.
