Actually, on closer examination, I saw that this was exactly what the
old version of the program was doing. And I generally prefer the
"proactive" approach anyway, rather than the "reactive" one. (I've been
known to scream at Java specialists for using a try/catch to handle
exceptions they could easily prevent.)
The program in question is indeed normally called from a CLP, riding
through 25 different files via an OVRDBF (or at least, through those
that exist from among the 25, which may vary).
Still, out of morbid curiosity, I wouldn't mind knowing a "reactive"
strategy that would work on a nonexistent primary file.
