OVRDBF not working???? Published by: Chris Proctor on 25 Aug 2011 view comments(3)

Good afternoon. I have a weird issue with a CL program. I have an OVRDBF command in my CL program overridng it to a member in the file. Well, the program that is called right after the override goes right to EOF. I put the program in debug and stepped thru the overrides then displayed my job to see if the overrides were in effect and they weren't! What the heck?! I've never seen that before. Obviously, the file and the member does exist.

Anyone else ever have this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
