Michael: The way we handle it is to ensure that the IJSYSPF DLBL imbedded within the APPLY JCL generated by IUI points to the file that we want, in addition to adding it to standard labels. This always works for us. When viewing it in DITTO, is the IJSYSPF file fixed-length 80-character records? What does standard labels show for IJSYSPF?

This is a vanilla z/VSE system that I ordered at the beginning of the year and am now trying to bring up to date. I created a special VSAM catalog for the PTFs and have put the files to the PTF.FILE contained with in. I also changed he standard labels to point to this file I ran the following: // JOB INSTFIX * * Job to install fixes from disk * // OPTION LOG // EXEC MSHP,SIZE=1M INSTALL SERVICE FROMDISK /* /& I get : BG 0000 M360I CROSS - REFERENCE LIST OF APPLICABLE PTFS IS PRINTED ON SYSLST BG 0000 M251D PTF SELECTION COMPLETED.ENTER "GO" TO CONTINUE OR "CANCEL" TO TERMINATE BG-0000 F1 0001 1Q34I LST WAITING FOR WORK ON 00E 0 GO BG 0000 0V15I REQUEST FROM SYSTEM SERVICE ROUTINE BG 0000 0S00I JOB INSTFIX CANCELED BG 0000 0S07I PROBLEM PROGRAM PSW = 071D2000 84B4114C BG 0000 0S29I DUMP STARTED BG 0000 0S30I DUMP STARTED.
