Re: V7R1 CL compile failing for CPYTOIMPF when specifying Targetrelease *PRV



fixed

I wonder if the enabling PTF had been permanently applied, Also, couldn't
the PTF save file be restored to an alternate library and then the
components copied to the QSYSV6R1M0 library?

It was there prior to upgrading to V7R1 only 1 month ago, Nov 2013.
Is it correct to say that when upgrading an OS release, PTFs that give the
new/additional parameters are deleted as part of the OS upgrade, thus the
previous release (V6R1) commands will "appear" as a base command without
the PTF added functionality.

Paul,

I believe when you compile *PRV the compiler looks at the command in the
QSYSV6R1M0 library. If you did not apply the PTF SI44866 prior to
upgrading to V7R1, the command in that library will not reflect the new
parameter.

Thank you,

Mark,

I found IBM doc N1015157, CPYTOIMPF and Record Order, states that the
order by was added by PTFs for both V7R1 and V6R1.
The latest V7R1 PTF is SI50479.
Does this mean if IBM changes functionality with additional parameters,
via PTFs, Target Release *PRV will not work.

SQL does not guarantee the order in which records are returned unless an
ORDER BY clause is specified. The CPYTOIMPF command uses SQL under the
covers (with no ORDER BY). Therefore, the order of the records in the
destination file was not guaranteed. This is still true for release V5R4
and prior releases.

At V6R1 and V7R1, the CPYTOIMPF has been enhanced by PTFs with a new option
ORDERBY:

CPYTOIMPF ORDERBY(*NONE)
CPYTOIMPF ORDERBY(*ARRIVAL)
CPYTOIMPF ORDERBY(Col1, Col2)

This enhancement needs to apply those PTFs, or their superseding PTFs:

R610: SI44866 (APAR: SE48718)
R710: SI44871 (APAR: SE49612)

Extract from the cover letters of those two PTFs:

CPYTOIMPF will allow the user to add a new parameter, Order By which will
order the records being exported. The Order By parameter will support any
valid SQL order by clause and the records will be exported into the to file
in the order requested by the parameter. This fix includes a new version of
the CPYTOIMPF command which includes the new parameter.

Paul:

The CPYTOIMPF command did not have an "ORDERBY" parameter at V6R1 or
before that. That was added at V7R1, and perhaps even not added until one
of the "Technical Refresh" levels after V7R1 was released (because when I
prompt CPYTOIMPF at V7R1 and press F10=Additional parameters, and put the
cursor in the "ORDERBY" field and press F1=Help, it says "Help not
available.").

So, your CL program will not compile with TGTRLS(*PRV) unless you omit the
"ORDERBY(*ARRIVAL)" specification.

Cheers,
