Hello Bob,

AFAIK the CRTBSCF command still exits but you need to have QSYS38 in your 
library list.  PDM 
should at least attempt to prompt the CRTBSCF command for source type BSCF38.

At some point Rochester is likely to drop support for the S/38 environment so a 
move to ICF is 
recommended.

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
