How does WebSmart handle multi-member files?

Product: WebSmart ILE Type: Frequently Asked Question

WebSmart will, by default, open the first member of a multi-member file. If you want to open a different member, you will need to execute an OVRDBF before the OPENFILE() function in the PML. There are a couple of ways you might go about doing this.

  1. Use the CALL function to call a CL that performs the OVRDBF;
  2. Use the RUNCMD function to perform the OVRDBF.


Even though you can specify a member name on the File dialog, this is not used when the file is opened.

BKM20130422 - We now have an ovrdbf() function in WebSmart you can use.
