View data through a logical file

Is there a utility to view data through a logical file, in somewhat the same format that I would do a dsppfm or through SQL?

You can use SQL to select the logical file by simply naming it as the file to select. You can also use DFU (STRDFU) to view the file one record at a time, WRKDBF, a freeware utility or DBU a licensed utility. There are also utilities available from the QUSRTOOL library. Information can be found in that library.
