Can you access an explicit file member using interactive SQL? I want to access a multi-member *PF.
Yes, the easiest way is to create an alias for each secondary member that you want to access, and then use the ALIAS name on your SQL request. Creating an alias is just a one-time setup operation.
Here's an example:
CREATE ALIAS mylib/a1 FOR mylib/myfile(mbr1)
SELECT * FROM mylib/a1 WHERE f1>0
