I am not familiar with AS400 databases.  What is a file member?

Basically when you create a file on the as400 the system normally creates a file member with the same name as the file, which stores all the records (data) , this is generally how files on the as400 are created, however it is also possible to have a file which will actually have multiple file members, which means each file member will have a different set of data.

Example: The following is from the file (called FIN890W1) this file has the members FIN890W1, GRDC71021, GRDC710437, and GRDC710440 as you can see by the records column the FIN890W1 member is empty, what i want to be able to do is report on the other file members.
