Using Omnis commands, I can create a new data file, write to it, close it, re-open it, write to it again. Sequence numbers increment as expected which confirms that the data is being written to disk and that the data file does exist. Also, I can later access these records normally as long as I don't lose the name of the data file.
However, I never see this data file on the desktop nor can I find it with the Finder - either by Name or by Creation Date. It is only visible in the Studio Browser.
Data files I create by the Studio Browser don't have this peculiarity. I must be missing something about the concept of an Omnis data file .
