Vini,

>      1.Override the file with Share(*yes).
Causes an ODP (open data path) for this file to be shared by different
programs.

>      2.Do a OPNQRYF with a Query select expression.
Creates an ODP with the record pointer pointing at the first selected
record.

>      3.Do a CPYFRMQRYF to a file in QTEMP which is not used anywhere.
Uses the ODP, leaving the pointer after the last selected record.

>      4.Call a RPGILE program which reads the file used in OPNQRYF.
Uses the same ODP with the pointer still at EOF, so when it tries to read,
it gets EOF.

You could either reposition the pointer (POSDBF POSITION(*START)) or leave
out the CPYFRMQRYF (pretty useless, if the file in QTEMP is not used
anywhere).
