TAA Tools

The Convert  PTF  Group Details  command converts  the individual  PTFs
for  a  PTF Group  or  all  PTF  Groups to  an  outfile.   Each  record
contains  several fields  describing the  status of  the PTF.   This is
the  same information  that  can  be  displayed  with  WRKPTFGRP  using
Option 5.   The  API 'QpzListPTFGroupDetails' is  used.  The  file name
is always PTFGRPDP with a format name of PTFGRPDR.

The model file is TAAPTFCP.

See  the CVTPTFGRP  command  to create  an outfile  for one  record for
each PTF group.

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

A typical command would be:

             CVTPTFGRPD PTFGRP(SF99nnn) OUTLIB(xxx)

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

CVTPTFGRPD escape messages you can monitor for

      CPF36A4    PTF group not found
      TAA9893    No PTFs were found for the group

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

CVTPTFGRPD Command parameters                         *CMD

   PTFGRP        The name of the PTF group to convert PTFs for.

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

   OUTMBR        The member  of  the PTFGRPDP  file to  be  used.   The
                 default  is PTFGRPDP.   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
