CVTPTFGRP       CONVERT PTF GROUP                      TAAPTFD

The Convert PTF  Group command converts  the PTF groups to  an outfile.
There  is one  record output  for each  PTF group.    This is  the same
information   that  can   be  displayed   with  WRKPTFGRP.     The  API
'QpzListPTFGroups' is used.   The  file name is  always PTFGRPP with  a
format name of PTFGRPR.

The model file is TAAPTFDP.

See  the CVTPTFGRPD  command to  create  an outfile  of the  individual
PTFs for a single group.

You  must have *USE  authority to  the system WRKPTFGRP  command to use

A typical command would be:

             CVTPTFGRP OUTLIB(xxx)

One record for each PTF group  would be written to the PTFGRPP file  in
the named library.

CVTPTFGRP escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9893    No PTFs groups were found

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

CVTPTFGRP Command parameters                          *CMD

   OUTLIB        The  library  in  which   the  file  PTFGRPP  will  be
                 placed.   The default is  *LIBL.  If  the PTFGRPP file
                 does not already exist, a library must be named.

   OUTMBR        The member  of  the PTFGRPP  file  to be  used.    The
                 default is PTFGRPP.   If the member does not  exist it
                 is added.

   REPLACE       A  *YES/*NO value  for  whether the  member  should be
                 cleared  before writing records into  it.  The default
                 is *YES.

                 *NO may be  specified to add  records to any  existing
