Changing *libl to *allusr or *all in DSPOBJD works fine.
I see mult ptfs for DSPOBJD, but not this described problem.
Trying to get our OPS to open a ticket w/IBM (and get newer cume).

Oh, and just to contradict the obviousness of that OBJ() parameter documentation... Like with the library special values *ALL and *ALLUSR for the "Library" of the named object, the OBJ() specification using a GENERIC* [or "Generic*"] object name will similarly process all objects by that name prefix [of the specified type; not multiple types] across multiple libraries, because there is not a specific object name to be found. I did not look for any specific help text or any other documentation explaining that effect.

So if acceptable to include other similarly named objects [i.e. any object with the same generic name] in the output, then the request could be made to instead:
