I'd like to be able to use CPYTOSTMF to copy a file created by a query but I get an error message

'Object is not a file or is a file with attributes not
supported by this command. '

The second-level text of that message tells you exactly why the copy fails. It does not support externally described database files.

Perhaps one of the other CPYxxx commands would suit your purposes better? Maybe CPYTOIMPF or perhaps one of the many free tools to convert a database file into a stream file.
