Does Server Module use PERMFILOVR

Post by mleonard » Fri Jun 10, 2016 3:54 am

Would like to use PERMFILOVR to override to file(s) in another library. Does SERVER MODULES OAM investigate if a PERMFILOVR exists and use it for the actual location of desired the data file?

There's nothing special about a server module, so there's no reason why PERMFILOVR shouldn't work.

However, PERMFILOVR is intended for dealing with files with nonstandard names. Normally accessing files in a different library is handled by a change to the library list.

Hi all.

Related to this, I've recently used the POINT command in a server module to allow FETCH, SELECT etc to access data from a logical file with non-standard field names.

This worked as expected; data read successfully by the server routine.

Cheers.

Marcus.
