One thing to be aware of with the Save While Active option on the save 
commands.  It is not exactly what it sounds like.  I tried to use that some 
months ago on a 24/7 shop, and it was locking up my users.  I contacted IBM 
and they said that the library can be active, but the records have to be in 
sinc.  It doesn't matter which form you use.  If you have a job running 
(Inter or batch) it needs to put all of the records in a freeze while it 
saves ALL of the files being used.  The difference between the options is 
that the actual transaction doesn't have to be complete.  We were unable to 
get past the situation.  IBM said that was just the way the commands 
worked.  I was told about a software company who could custom create saves 
which would allow some abilities to actually save while active, but they 
were cost prohibitive at that time.

Does anyone know where I might find information on the Save While Active
process besides the Advanced IBM books?
