CPYFRMSTMF FROMSTMF('/usr/sap/bgt/edilink/snd/orde/orde*+ TOMBR('/qsys.lib/sap.lib/edibgt.file/edibgt+ .mbr') MBROPT(*REPLACE)
You can't - CPYFRMSTMF does not allow patterns (wildcard characters) to be specified. If you're trying to take multiple stream files to one database file you have to issue the command multiple times, using MBROPT(*ADD).
