Hi Fred,

That should be part of the CREATE VIEW declaration

SELECT * FROM sometableorview1 WHERE condition1
SELECT * FROM sometableorview2 WHERE condition2;

Your questions that are specific to LFs (rather than SQL VIEWs) would be better asked in one of the AS/400 forums.

If I understand your question, what you're looking for would be called a multiple format logical. You would list the logical definitions of the various Physical Files one after the other, rather than describing only one.

There are details, of course, but that's the basics.
