    We just move our production from V5R4 to V6R1...   What is "move"? Did you move to a new system? Or did you just upgrade the OS to 6.1? Are reasonable cume PTFs applied to 6.1?   We found that the return value coming from Service Pgm is Junk in V6R1.   How did you find that? You can't run a 'service program' (unless it's registered as a stored procedure). You have to bind to it from a program, then run the program. Did you create test programs on 6.1? Or are you running programs brought over from V5R4?   Most importantly, what does the service program actually do? What do its interfaces look like? Particularly, what what are the definitions of its prototypes? What APIs are called? (Some changed in 6.1. Some require specific PTFs.)   Tom

    These are your own service programs not a third parties programs. They were created with observability?

    Agree with the other posters, need far much more information. FYI it wouldn't be the first time that APIs have undergone subtle changes that make all the difference. Going from V5R3 to R4 we had to cater for a change to QDCRDEVD which all of a sudden started returning nulls rather than spaces in the IP address we were retrieving. As always, absolutely thorough testing of all apps on a machine with the upgrade installed prior to go-live is my recommendation

    Service PGM  we are using for  dates and values  .   I wouldn't normally think much about basic date functions. But we still don't know what APIs are being used or what the interfaces are. There's not much we can say to help.   It being used for calculation...   Calculation of what? And how?   Tom
