Open Workfile for write, but append output

Is it possible to open an existing workfile for write without deleting it? My itention is, to append new lines to an existing workfile.

And: I don’t want to use a printfile…

Ups! I’m working on a Linux-Computer, not on a mainframe.

OK. Wrong category, but the problem stays the same!

Hi Matthias,

To my knowledge this is not possible. This operating system do not have a DISP=MOD feature. :frowning:

You could possibly do following instead:

cat new-work-file >> existing-work-file
rm new-work-file

This feature has been requested already as enhancement proposal.
:arrow: Please refer to: EP164 and EP2681.
It is planned for the upcoming version Natural 6.2. 8)
