>From the SAVLIB command: *ALLUSR 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. -----Original Message----- From: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of midrange-l-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, March 16, 2004 9:06 AM To: midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: What determines a user library? ------------------------------ message: 11 date: Tue, 16 Mar 2004 09:05:17 -0500 from: "Smith, Dave" <DSmith@xxxxxxxxx> 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! David Smith
