Having said that the addition of the "index" fixed the problem is only half the story. If the original .int file is used, as created by the wizard, you can open the table in dbExplor but the table would not open my program. I had to revert to what you suggested for the last section so the entire .int file needs to look like this:

Code:
DRIVER_NAME ODBC_DRV
SERVER_NAME DFCONNID=ConnODBCID
DATABASE_NAME wwsys
SCHEMA_NAME rms4


SYSTEM_FILE YES
TABLE_CHARACTER_FORMAT ANSI
USE_DUMMY_ZERO_DATE YES
