Jill Where are you located? I'm sure one of us know a company in your city or a person in your city that we can get to help. You are new to the system and there are lots of people that would help you use it effectively. Now Then, There must be a terminal setup (like on the Mainframe) as the System Console. That is the terminal that must be used. What Alan was saying about the WRKACTJOB panel is important. Your Terminal must appear under the QCTL (Q Control) subsystem. The other terminals(the one you are using most likely) are all under Subsystem QINTER( Q Interactive). That Subsystem will end if the entire machine is backed up(SAVE ALL). Only QCTL stays up(for your knowledge at least at this point). You will get help, The learning is Not that bad. Hang in there and we will help as much as possible. John Carr ---------------------- I really hate to say this, but I really meant it when I said that the only keyboard in the vicinity of the AS400 is attached to a PC, then goes to the 400. Maybe something strange about the way it was set up. Well, it looks then like I can't use this option to back up the system. Guess I'll have to look for something else. (Sigh.) Thanks all. You'd think backups should be relatively straightforward. Thanks, Murphy.
