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

Have you looking into encryption?
Depending on what release level you are on, there is some encryption methods that is now part of the iSeries.
Another option is to purchase a software package.
We handle credit card information so we must encrypt and use masking to meet PCI requirementrs.
We use Crypto Complete from Linoma Software

    If this is primarily for supplying test data, I'd probably just create a VIEW that replaced problem values with generated values. But I can't quite understand the relationship between TAB1 and TAB2. It looks as if TAB2 has each field from TAB1 split onto a separate line. Is TAB2 the file that is going to be copied or masked? What creates the records in TAB2? Tom
