    After I delete all the objects owned by myprofile (using WRKOBJOWN myprofile to check the objects),it still shows 16M. Are all owned objects deleted? Doesn't myprofile even own its own user message queue? 16MB isn't very much space. A single message queue can be that big. Or a single user space. A single data queue could be 2000MB. A single user index can become 1000000MB. (i 6.1 sizes) Regardless, there are a number of possibilities. See for example, these PTFs: MF47485 (for 6.1.1) MF47487 (for 6.1) SI28919 SI32536 There are other PTFs, but you might read through those and see if any of those circumstances apply to you. They might also give you ideas about what might be done even without PTFs. In particular, has there been a system failure, e.g., power outage, since myprofile was created but no subsequent RCLSTG? If so, there might be a need for reclaiming some storage. Your most likely actions will be to make sure that you are reasonably current on PTFs, to review general system areas such as iASPs and to check output from PRTDSKINF to see if RCLSTG is noted for space recovery. If those all seem well, then IBM Support is a good place to call. Of course, someone might have some other good suggestions here, so watch this question for a while. Tom

    Gaoshen100 - Try WRKUSRPRF myprofile then take option 12 - if memory servers me well, that is the option that displays the objects owned by the user. Phil

    does anyone know about such case? how to make it to be less or zero storage used? Yes, IBM knows about it. That's why I listed PTFs above. Have you looked at them? Are they all applied on your system? Do you have storage that needs to be reclaimed? Do you have old documents in /QDLS that might have excessive "extended attributes"? Do you use iASPs? It is almost certain that no one outside of IBM can help you if no owned objects show up for myprofile. You can apply the PTFs. You can try RCLSTG. You might even try RCLDLO. You might make sure that iASPs are active. Otherwise, call IBM Support. Tom

    mnw9028 - Thanks for coming to ITKE.

    You added a comment to an existing question that has no relationship to your concern. You should open a new question if you need more information. A stored procedure would need to be created on the AS400. This procedure would receive 2 parms: USRPRF and Password. The store procedure would do a CHGUSRPRF command. NOTE: It would need to have enough authority to change profiles.
