IIRC, you cannot execute a SQL statement against a DDM file. You can do a
CONNECT to the other system and work SQL against those tables.

Morning all
On one system (system A), I have a DDM file connecting to another system
(system B)
I have to pull data from this DDM file on system A, but when attempting
this in STRSQL, I get the message
File not table, view, or physical file.
Which is true
I have attempted to use an OVRDBF with the same result
I have used CPYF and copied this DDM file to another file and was able to
use this CPYF file, but I was wondering if anyone had found a way to use SQL
against a DDM file?
As always, all responses MUCH appreciated
