>From the SAVLIB command: 
    All user libraries are saved. All libraries with names
    that do not begin with the letter Q are saved except  
    for the following:                                    
        #CGULIB     #DSULIB     #SEULIB                   
        #COBLIB     #RPGLIB                               
        #DFULIB     #SDALIB       
   Although the following Qxxx libraries are provided by 
   IBM, they typically contain user data that changes    
    frequently.  Therefore, these libraries are considered
    "user libraries," and are also saved:                 
        QDSNX       QRCL        QUSRBRM     QUSRPOSGS     
        QGPL        QRCLxxxxx   QUSRDIRCL   QUSRPOSSA     
        QGPL38      QSYS2       QUSRDIRDB   QUSRPYMSVR    
        QMPGDATA    QSYS2xxxxx  QUSRIJS     QUSRRDARS     
        QMQMDATA    QS36F       QUSRINFSKR  QUSRSYS       
        QMQMPROC    QUSER38     QUSRNOTES   QUSRVI        
        QPFRDATA    QUSRADSM    QUSROND     QUSRVxRxMx        

Looks like IBM uses the 'Q' to indicate their librarys and then applies some 
exceptions.  Hope this helps.

subject: What determines a user library?

One of my customers has a library on their system that was created many many 
years ago that contains all their custom code and custom files. This library 
begins with the letter "Q" which is the first letter of the company that 
originally created the library. While I know itâEUR(tm)s not a good idea to 
name a library beginning with the letter "Q", I donâEUR(tm)t know if 
thatâEUR(tm)s part of my problem.

The problem is that this library does not show up as a user library on the 
system. When I run the command DSPLIB LIB(*ALLUSR), it does not show up. When I 
look in the Change Library Backup List off the SETUPBCKUP menu, it does not 
appear. I also can not do a SAVLIB *ALLUSR because it will not be included on 
the save. I am forced to save this library by name to get a backup on it.

What on the system is telling it that this is not a "User" library? And how can 
I change it?

V5R2 and I believe this library ad the same issue on previous releases.

Thanks for the help!
