Sorry Barbara,

I worded that poorly.

On the other hand, I think you may have to <grin>.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't having the main procedure return
with LR = *ON only affect files specified in the same module as the
mainline? (Assume the program isn't running in a *NEW activation
group.) Certainly, if the module with the f-spec is being used from a
service program, the main procedure returning with LR = *ON wouldn't
close the file. (again assuming ACTGRP(*NEW) isn't used).

In the OP's case, it seems the issue is files specified in a module
other than the one that contains the mainline. I'm still not usre i

Charles, having USROPN coded for a file doesn't affect whether it gets
implicitly closed. It only affects whether it gets implicitly opened.

If a main procedure returns with LR on, the USROPN files will get closed.
