Hmmm, why not use CHGPF?

Because old habits die hard?

Because the first time I tried CHGPF I got a warning message that scared me that I could lose data?

Does CPYF with (*MAP *DROP) not give a similar message? It should; I haven't actually looked. I'd expect mostly the same kinds of 'loss of data' to be possible both ways. Maybe the warning is a _good_ thing, eh?

Of course, CPFY with *NOCHK should be an obvious 'loss leader'. That should almost require additional programming to force the function to continue after acknowledging the condition.
