Top of Page format not appearing in 2nd file

Top of Page format not appearing in 2nd file

I am looping through a list of clients and for each one doing a SQL call and writing the results to a dynamically named file that includes the clients name. The top of page format is used in the first file, but in the second file it doesn't show up until page 2. I have checked the value of $- and it is 0 which is supposed to cause the top of page format to be used. I explicitly closed the first file before opening the 2nd. What could be causing this?

RE: Top of Page format not appearing in 2nd file

I know this comes late, but I have had a similar problem. I suspect it has to do with having 2 files open at the same time. Any ideas out there ?
