Dale,

Don't your users use *ws to access spool files? That's the MAPICS-supplied
shortcut for wrksplf.

Bob,

I have a question.  I have blocked command line access (Limit Capabilities =
*YES), and the users only get a 4 character command line that they use to
enter a menu option # (for non-MAPICS users) or the 4 character MAPICS menu
option (for MAPICS users - we use MAPICS Menuing).  How can they type "
*wrksplf"?  I'm concerned about this security issue.....

Jeff, I have two thoughts on your e-mail

1--When you block command line access, users can still get back-door access
by typing *wrksplf. So you are likely to have only the illusion of security.
In my view this is worse than no security.

2--IFM's security lets you control access by user and function. I realize
that IFM may be overkill in this case, but if security is "driving the bus"
then it is a much better way to go. Also, if someone did get access to IFM
files, they would retire before they got useful data.
