Up until now I have been confused by this discussion. Perhaps I still am. The reason to change the effective group profile of the job is to get more or less authority. The only time authority is derived from a profile or group profile is at runtime. So if the effective group profile is different at the time you do DSPMODSRC than it is at STRDBG then what you are seeing may make perfect sense. Ed Fishel, edfishel@US.IBM.COM
