Hi Vern,

Yes, I can see that with existing systems, no need to rock the boat.

But if all references to the work file are qualified to QTEMP, it wouldn't matter that there was an empty copy in a permanent library.

We have work files that sit empty in permanent libraries. A copy is made into QTEMP to avoid contention when different users are using the same application. Long-time practice on these systems, I think.

Subject: Re: QTEMP position in library list

Now there's a thought. Why have QTEMP in the library list at all except
for testing?  If you need a file or object in QTEMP for production,
qualify any reference to it.

Honestly I would think that for testing issues you can change that on the fly in an interactive job, or use a test job description with an alternative library list.
