CLOSE? What version is that?

Joel,

Sorry, it's not CLOF, it's actually CLOSE.

"The Close Database File (CLOSE) command will explicitly close a database file that was implicitly opened by a Receive File (RCVF) command run within the same CL program or ILE CL procedure. A file with the same open identifier must have been declared by a Declare File (DCLF) command within the same CL program or ILE CL procedure.

After the CLOSE command is run, the next RCVF command for this file will implicitly reopen the file and read a record from the file.

You can use CLOSE for a database file that is already closed or was never opened; no error message will be sent."

Thanks,
Kurt

Good idea, but CLOF only works with OPNQRYF and OPNDBF according to help.

I tried that, issues error Message ID . . . . . . :   CPF4520
Date sent  . . . . . . :   05/30/12      Time sent  . . . . . .

Message . . . . :   No file open with identifier EMADDR.






                       Close File - Help

 The Close File (CLOF) command closes a database file.  This command
 works in conjunction with the Open Query File (OPNQRYF) and Open
 Database File (OPNDBF) commands.

You can't reposition an open file, can you?  For some reason I was thinking you couldn't.  Then again, I rarely do anything than the most basic I/O in CL.

Have you tried using CLOF before going to the Top label?

I have a CL loop as follows:


Top:
Load keyValue
OVRDBF     FILE(TestFile) POSITION(*KEYAE 1 *N &KeyValue)
rcvf
goto Top





The OVRDBF positions the file ONLY the first time thru (apparently it only positions for the NEXT file open).


How can I read the record that I need (using keys) several times in on CL run?


Thanks!
