Thanks, Rob, for clarifying my early-morning response. Yes, the suggestion was to create a new view over QADBXREF and leave out the DBXREL = 'Y' from the statement - something like that.

I run into authority problems with QADBXREF when I try to run a SELECT against it - it is a very important system file and is strongly protected, as it should be.

Creating a view over the CRTPF RCDLEN(...) file was not the suggestion. I believe the suggestion was to create a view over the underlying table that SYSTABLES is built over. Or you could just query it directly.

These 2 views - you can DSPFD SYSTABLES or DSPFD SYSPSTAT - one of the elements of the WHERE clause is DBXREL = 'Y' - PFs created with CRTPF and using RCDLEN are not relational, therefore, they are excluded from these views. A person COULD make their own views and include them, I suppose - just use a different name, right? Cheers Vern
