• Subject: Unexpected results using API "QUSRMBRD"

What type of reformatting is being required?  QUSRMBRD is one of the
original V1R3 APIs and has not (in a very quick review of its history)
had any major formatting problems.  When using the API are you using
the includes provided in the QSYSINC library?  If not, can you compare
your definition of the receiver variable to how it's defined in QSYSINC?

Some common errors if you are defining the receiver yourself is that the
System API Reference documentation is in Base 0  for offsets while
languages such as RPG and COBOL are Base 1.  Another common error for RPG
is to inadvertently define 2-byte binary/integer fields rather than
4-byte fields.

Again, a clarification on what you expected vs what you got would help
alot here.
