mmm....I don't think so.   I'm capturing everything and restoring it, as is.
That is, if it's created as job TB01 by user MEUSER with job #, 456778, then 
when
I restore it, it will be placed back out there the same way.  I'm 99% sure it
works this way, otherwise it wouldn't have done the job for me doing my CISC to
RISC conversions.  I guess I could run it again just to make sure, but I'm 
pretty
certain it works as described.  I think you may be using these APIs incorrectly
if you're not getting the actual job info that it was created with.
