Ummm, if the file doesn't exist then it's *supposed* to take the else clause, when I'm creating new files I use THEN and put the "abort" in there.
When you borrowed this code did it have all of the validation? I don't have my error codes handy - but if you let it continue does it let you do the writeseq?

I put a dummy file inside to prove it. FNAME does not exist. In the code I stole this from the name is created anew each time. It always open the "file" empty, allows me to populate and close it. However, in this code it's not working. Since we're running SB+/SBClient I thought the '.XLS' extension was causing issues (grasping at straws) but I'm getting the same errors.

I presume you can LIST LRGLBRVARS @ TCL without difficulty right? If so, I would think the OPENSEQ should work with that just fine. May I also presume that you looed at FNAME and a file with that name really does exist in that directory file? On Mon, Aug 5, 2013 at 7:10 AM, Al DeWitt wrote: > Please educate me on OPENSEQ.
