*NLVLIB and *SYSTEM are supported command library qualifications. The can even be typed on a command line. However the change to the OS is not relevant for normal use, since user default qualification is by *LIBL; i.e. unspecified [aka unqualified] command requests search for the *CMD in *LIBL. As a user, if I type WRKQRY, it searches for the WRKQRY *CMD [or proxy command] in *LIBL. It is on IBM menus and within programs where the command invocations are since qualified to prevent non-system command usages; and the /replace command/ ¿QCARPLCM? or whatever the API is to explicitly allow redirecting the IBM qualified command requests.

Thus what Jerry is doing is fine for user command requests at a command line [and in REXX, CL, CLP, and other functions]. A copied *proxy* command however, is not the same. Be sure to *correct* any scenario that currently is just a simple CRTDUPOBJ & customize; i.e. the customized command for CHGCMDDFT will be the original, *not* the duplicate.... which may be both highly undesirable *and* not achieve any desirable results.

Regards, Chuck
