no - this is the only pgm in the entire jobstream that uses these files...
they are only referenced in the declare cursor statement...

could there be some actgrp situation going on from pgms upstream that have
called this pgm?

pgm has sql compile options:

exec sql
set option
commit = *NONE,
closqlcsr = *ENDMOD,
datfmt = *ISO;

When I run this pgm interactively it closes the file as it should.
When this job is run in existing jobstreams withing our EOD, these files
are left open.

What could be the difference that is leaving the file open?

I'm guessing that you're seeing pseudo-closed files. Is there something
like a CPYF, SAVOBJ, or something else that's trying to get an implicit
*EXCL lock on one of the files in the SQL cursor? If so, have a look at
