Hi Bill

Can you explain this more? As far as I know, a DDM file is local and points to a file on a remote system. And doesn't have source.

So I'd like to learn what you refer to, as it might be useful.

Thanks
Vern

Did you try to connect to the remote system and read the source of the

Subject: Using STRSQL against a DDM file

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
