Brad,
        I did save the library specifying V3R2M0, that worked OK. A
co-worker here told me not to ship the tape because the client is on CISC
format(V3R2) and it won't work since we have a RISC format. 
        From the response today on midrange it looks like I need to
recompile, on a new library, and then cut a tape. There is no data involved.
It's one Cobol program with four PF files for forms definitions, bunch of
1099 tax stuff that ties to a accounting system.
        The orginal program was in CISC format, our machine converted it to
RISC. Wish I had the orginal tape but it can't find it. It was lost before I
ever worked here.

Art,

If they can't be saved to V3R2M0, the system will tell you.  If you save to
release V3R2M0 and everything goes well, it will be no problem.

If you do get an error telling you you can't save to a previous release,
recompile specifying V3R2M0.  If it won't even compile, it's because you're
using something that doesn't work in V3R2M0 (such as some %bifs or
something) and you may have to change the source and recompile again.

So, just try saving it first.  Start there.
