Use OPNQRYF with record selection

Can I use OPNQRYF with record selection over a Logical File? Then I'd like to chain to the Open Query File by the keys setup in the OPNQRYF File with the KEYFLD, which is different than the logical file?
If you create a dummy physical with the key fields that you are creating in the Open Query File and override that file to the Open Query file it will work.
