Ooooh - that's it!!
Makes sense - I will give this a try.

The technique requires the use of CPYF, using the record/field
selection, to copy the 1 record you need into a work-file you have
opened, then use a simple sequential RCVF.
As long as you don't hit EOF (CPF0864 I think) and close the file,
you can read any records, just like a CHAIN.

I have a CL loop as follows:
OVRDBF FILE(TestFile) POSITION(*KEYAE 1 *N &KeyValue)
monmsg (cpf4137 cpf0864) exec(deal-with-it) /* <ed: addendum> */
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?
