I suspect the confusion came from a typo. In the message Jon replied to, you said "were" externally described.

"real" was a poor choice of words. I was trying to use:
SELECT * FROM Qsys2.Syspartitionstat WHERE
(Table_Schema = 'Library' AND TABLE_NAME = 'Filename')
to check for member change date/time, but a couple files did not show up.
found out when I checked the DSPFD, it shows:
Externally described file . . . . . . . . . : No
since it isn't externally described, it won't show up in any of the SQL catalog tables, since it isn't a relational file. <IBM explanation>
