Oddly enough, if we run the steps by hand (in an interactive job), the
copy works perfectly. This problem only happens when we run the copy in
a batch job.
Whenever something runs differently betweeen interactive and batch,
first thing I always check is library list difference. Sinc you are
being explicit in the libraries, that wouldn't seem to apply in this
Have you tried specifying a different library instead of qtemp? Have
you tried a different tofile name instead of exactly the same as the
fromfile? Since the file names are all substitution variables, changing
the tofile might not be easily done.
Is there a distinct reason for the CpyF? I believe that ChgPF does all
of the copying out and back for you, so that's just an extra step.
