RUNQRY will not work with DDM. That is how IBM designed them.

You would need to use SQL to do that and then you would need to use the SQL CONNECT command to link to the remote system.

Recalling my experience, the use of a DDMFile was quite seamless; both the
RPG compile and the RPG run-time acted on the DDMF the same as if acting on
a local version of the Physical File or the Logical File [aside from some
extra messaging about DDM conversations IIRC], and neither of Open Database
File (OPNDBF) nor Override With Database File (OVRDBF) were required

I have very little reason to doubt you, but I'm equally confident I
didn't just imagine the error messages I got. I'll check again when
I'm able.

Also, I tried other things besides RPG to access the DDMF directly,
such as RUNQRY. Nothing worked.
