I suspect that he is referring to the remote file that the DDM file is pointing to. Not source as in source code, but the source of the data.

Subject: Re: Using STRSQL against a DDM file
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.

Subject: Using STRSQL against a DDM file
On one system (system A), I have a DDM file connecting to another system
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
