Excellent idea. One which my boss discovered. However may I offer the following suggestion? When you do the second restore use the OPTION(*NEW). Much faster.

Yes, twice. Then it won't matter what order you do them in. You will get errors the first time you run it (logical can't be built over non existent physical file, etc...) and you should get no errors the second time. The first time through it will restore all the phsical files, and some of the logicals, dependent on if the physical was there before it go to the logical or not. The second time it will over write the physicals and the logicals it already did, and then it will restore the rest of the logicals since the physicals are now there. I follow this rule whenever I'm restoring any library, just run the command twice and forget about it. Otherwise you're going to spend a long time trying to figure out where your logicals are.

My theory is that I would create a temporary library for this & copy the software for the reports they neglected to run, so that it gets at the temporary copy of only the files involved.
