Hi Sam,

Thanks for the response.

The situation is trying to migrate 2 out of 3 old, large, complicated and intertwined applications from a v5r4 machine to a Power 8 running v7r3 (finally!).

Eventually the 3rd application will be migrated, but the 2 to be migrated have urgent security considerations, so we're trying to do a "rapid" migration with minimal modifications that will keep the interfaces (via files) between the applications working.  And will simplify the migration of the 3rd application.

It's looking like we'll have to identify the programs that use SQL and modify them, and use CRTDDMF for the RPG programs, which are the bulk of the application.  There will also be some remote data areas involved, which work fine.

You assumption seems likely.  So what happens if you try using SQL in TESTALIAS to read the data?  Or do you have an existing program that is not amenable to modification?
