Will you then fix up your RPG program to reposition the file pointer as
well?  Like F. Kolmann pointed out, using SHARE(*YES) implies that no
program should make assumptions where the file pointer is.  CPYFRMQRYF does
not, as your observation shows.  Your program does; it assumes the pointer
is at the beginning of the file.  However, this is easily fixed with POSDBF
in the CL.

As for the problems with SETLL *LOVAL: this will not try to position to the
first record, but to the first selected record, but if you want to use
random access, you'll have to specify SEQONLY(*NO) on the OPNQRYF.
