It sounds to me like the program is using the authority of the programs
owner and not that of the user.  Change the program to use user authority or
give the owner the authority to perform the task.

        Hope that helps.

I created a file.  If I clear the file (clrpfm) from the command line, all
is well.

If I call a program from a command line that clears this file, I get an
error message saying that I am not authorized.

Am I missing something or is there a PTF to correct this?
