There are two examples there, one for "objects" and one for "licensed programs". The one for objects states "Change the owner to QSYS." The other states "Change the owner to QSYS. QSYS MUST be the owner of the QINSTAPP program". However, I don't consider these pages to be documentation any more than I would Redbooks. Stuff on those pages is just examples. AFAIK, the general requirement is that the owning profile should exist on the system that executes LODRUN. I'm not totally certain that that's an absolute requirement depending on (1) what profile executes LODRUN, (2) what system values, etc., are set and (3) what the USRPRF() attribute of QINSTAPP is, i.e., *OWNER or *USER. ===>Thinking about it now Tom, I rememeber that if the profile that owns QINSTAPP does not exist, a CPF error message is generated to the job stating that the proile is not known to the current system and ownership of program QINSTAPP has been assigned to QDFTOWN. I suppose that if you could monitor that CPF message, you could recoever from it, but the monitor would have to be outside of the QINSTAPP program because the program has yet to be called when the CPF message is generated. But this is all pretty esoteric isn't it? Best to assign ownership and use the tool as it was intended. :) jte Tom Liotta -- Tom Liotta The PowerTech Group, Inc. 19426 68th Avenue South Kent, WA 98032 Phone 253-872-7788 Fax 253-872-7904 http://www.400Security.com ___________________________________________________ The ALL NEW CS2000 from CompuServe Better!
