Not that this isn't somewhat nifty, but why not just use OPNQRYF?

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!

First, thanks Dale, I appreciate the Nifty comment.

I had considered mentioning OPNQRYF in the article, but never actual considered using it since it is now 2014 and not 1984. Need I go on? For the record, even the guy who wrote it, George Timms from IBM, thinks it should have been retired more than a decade ago.

[EDIT: I have gone into the article and mentioned OPNQRYF]
