I would assume that your question is how to create a single program to process files with different data, but the same data format. The CL command OVRDBF will allow you to override the file name in the RPG program to open a different file name.
Example: FILEA - Original File. FILEB - New file that has just arrived. PGMA - Program was written to use FILEA. CL Commands: CALL PGMA - Calls program "A" and processes FILEA OVRDBF FILE(FILEA) TOFILE(*LIBL/FILEB) CALL PGMA - Calls program "A" and processes FILEB
