I received this question in an email from one of our developers. I have verified the profile has the correct authority to do the update, but I can not seem to locate the cause of the error message. I even went so far as to give *PUBLIC all authority to the file. Where can I find information on the error code? *RNF5198 30 1 File in Factor 2 is not allowed for UPDATE or DELETE operation. Here is the code: 86 C Read(E) ISPFPSO 87 C DoW NOT %EOF 88 * 89 C If ENTXSO = *BLANKS 90 C KPSDX Chain(E) ISPSDX0 91 C If NOT %ERROR 92 C Eval ENTXSO = ENTXSX 93 C Update(e) ISPSO00 94 C Endif 95 C Endif 96 * 97 C Read(E) ISPFPSO 98 C EndDo Here is the authority I found for the file: Display Object Authority Object . . . . . . . : ISPFPSO Owner . . . . . . . : ISPRD Library . . . . . : xxxxxxxx Primary group . . . : *NONE Object type . . . . : *FILE ASP device . . . . . : *SYSBAS Object secured by authorization list . . . . . . . . . . . . : PRDDTA Object ----------Object----------- User Group Authority Opr Mgt Exist Alter Ref *GROUP ISPRD *ALL X X X X X *PUBLIC *USE X Bruce Barrett PMI Mortgage Insurance Co. 3003 Oak Road Walnut Creek, CA 94597 925-658-6152 bruce.barrett@xxxxxxxxxxxx This e-mail is confidential and may be privileged.
