yes, the rename did work. Im just wondering why wrklnk will at least see the file name, where ls will not.

Tim,

I seem to remember having a problem similar to yours some years ago. In my
case the problem was that the file had some"non-standard" characters as
part of its name.

A rename was enough to get the file accessible again.

HTH,

I have a weird situation. I got a complaint that a utility i wrote to
display the content of a windows server folder was not working. I did a
wrklnk on the location (/qntc/....), and was able to see the file name.
when i put a 5 to display it, it said "object not found". I then used
windows explorer to view the folder. The file is there and im able to open
it, but i also noticed there is a strange value thats part of the file
name. When i use wrklnk to view the name, it shows a reverse image box in
place of the special character.

So i then tried to view the folder using qsh ls command. when i issue the
command, it doesnt return anything. yet i know the file exists.

has anyone run across this issue before? im not sure why wrklnk would show
it where "ls" would not. Im sure under the covers they are difference
processes used to display the content.
