Thanks for your reply Vern
What you are saying is in fact what I am finding out
The only problem (unless I am wrong - which no longer surprises me) with using remote SQL is that I won't be able to use files on the local system as well as the DDM file.

It's not allowed, Alan - I'm sure you will see a message to that effect in STRSQL.

Instead, find out what the file is that the DDM file points to and use remote SQL to get to it - that would include adding an entry to the relational database list - WRKRDBDIRE is the command to start with, I believe.

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
