Hi Doug

Maybe look at the generated source to see what the pre-compiler did with it. Should be one in QTEMP, but you can specify a peristent library on the CRTSQLRPGI command.

to give a definitive answer)
I've tried tests of creating an OVRDBF, but that works fine in testing.
I've also tried tests of locking MYFILE exclusively in another session, but
that also works fine.

My testing has been on both v7.2 and v7.1

My RPGLE program uses this:

I submit my compile to batch and the program is created.
PRDLIB is not in my library list forthe compile.
DSPPGMREF does indeed show PRDLIB/MYFILE getting used.

Now I have another more involved process that runs in batch, and as part
that batch process the CRTBNDRPG command is issued with the exact same
parms I used previously, using the exact same member. In this batch
the PRDLIB/MYFILE *FILE is actually being used and is open.
This subsequent compile produces:

I've also tried this format:
with the same results.

This actually started off as an SQLRPGLE, which produced:
SQL1001 30 17 External file definition for MYFILE not found.

Why can't the compiler find PRDLIB/MYFILE ?
Is there an OVRDBF for MYFILE in the batch process that does the failing
