• DDS with temporary name for Physical file

    Good day all ! On AS400 I have a CL program that creates a temporary Physical file with variable name. File name is created with "user_id + job_name + time". How can I create a logical file, specifying in DDS for logical file that my PFILE is temporary and has variable name ? Thanks !
