I know this thread started with you trying to find objects with the wrong
I am wondering if the profiles that belong to groups have the OWNER parm
set to *GRPPRF.
If that is set then then the group becomes the owner of created objects.

I never saw any mention of the parm and was just wondering how it was set.

No, we're trying to find objects users created on the fly and now have the
wrong owner.

Let me explain.  We have multiple divisions, 01, 26, 30, 70, etc.  The file
library for 01 is owned by group profile SSA01, and so on.  Currently to
work in either library you need multiple user profiles ROB01, ROB26, etc.
Even though we negotiated with SSA to not charge for the multiple ROB's, we
have some whiners here who don't like using multiple user id's.  So the
thought is to have ROB01 have access to all these libraries, without
*ALLOBJ, by giving him supplemental groups.  But if he runs something in
the library owned by SSA26 then the object will be now owned by SSA01 -
provided some object is created on the fly.

In a better situation we would not even be using group profiles, but use
program adopted authority instead - but I don't see that happening here.

To use your suggestion Al, we would have to do the WRKOBJOWN for each SSA*
owner and determine which are in a library that they don't belong.
