AFAIK, if you want to use native I/O, you have to create a logical that excludes any LOB fields.

You could also use SQL (embedded, CLI, ODBC, JDBC, etc) to read the file, then you wouldn't need the special logical file.

Not sure how to determine which is "better". I would judge that on a case-by-case basis.

I have built a logical with just the fields I need but I think there must be
a better way. Do I have to use embedded SQL instead?
