Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

You don’t need to create another user Id – the user Id in the ADDDIRE command is only used for sending / receiving (using SNDNETF or SNDNETSPLF). There is another parameter where you fill in the real user profile name.

Martin Gilbert.

Sangay,

The USER parameter on the ADDDIRE is what needs to match the User Profile on your system. It is 10 characters long.

Hope this helps,
Bill Poulin
