I can't find this value anywhere, CHRID or CHRIDCTL, I don't see it on
DSPUSRPRF, CHGUSRPRF or WRKUSRPRF.  I'm on V3R7M0.

Comparing all the other attributes of the user profiles (mine and test's) I see
almost everything is set to *SYSVAL for both of us.

This is strange.  I think I"m going to try to copy MY user profile and use
that and see what happens.  This one really has me puzzled.

Regards,

Jim Langston
