Re: Rhyme nor reason



fixed

Not to be a wise guy, but have you had one of these people actually sit in 
your seat and type exactly what you type?  I've had confusions where we 
both thought we were typing the same thing but weren't quite.   Also have 
you tried their profiles and failed?

I can't find this value anywhere, CHRID or CHRIDCTL, I don't see it on
DSPUSRPRF, CHGUSRPRF or WRKUSRPRF.  I'm on V3R7M0.

Comparing all the other attributes of the user profiles (mine and test's) 
I see
almost everything is set to *SYSVAL for both of us.

This is strange.  I think I"m going to try to copy MY user profile and use
that and see what happens.  This one really has me puzzled.
