All well and good, except that 43rd program is a nice shiny new ILE
program that was inserted in the job stream after 42 OPM programs. I'm
not saying that was a good design choice, but probably a very common
situation.

If this program happens to be the 43rd program in a 96-program job
stream where 42 programs have already updated the database, and it
happens to be running at 2am on a Sunday...

@Trevor: I would recommend to read some manuals about some very basic
ILE
concepts, that might help!!!
The very diffrence between a signature violation and an error at calling
an
imported procedure is, that the signature violation will occur at
A C T I V A T I O N T I M E and most of activation is done, when an

activation group is created, long before any activity is starting.
