Vern,

I've had LOTS of simular stuff to what you're describing...  I think that
with v3r1 someone changed the default scope of the OVRDBF.  You now have
to change 2 parms in the OVRDBF cmd so that they're *JOB not level...I've
got a killer migrain or I'ld look them up for ya...  But we ran into ALOT
of this right after going to v3r1...as in code that worked pre v3r1 didn't
at v3r1 UNTIL the OVRDBF was changed.   Was a royal pain...

Don in DC metro...
