Is OVRDBF good to use? I'm planning to query selection from a huge database file and then use OVRDBF. This job will be submitted multiple. Is this a good design in term of processing time?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It depends on a few factors. If you are looking to view the data in in a different format or sequence then an OPNQRYF may work better for you. If you are just looking to point to a different file (maybe in a different library or with a different name) but has the same record format then use the OVRDBF command.
