What do you mean by 'restore'? I have never heard of restoring a job - restarting: yes, a restore job (one that restores data): yes. What is $.ap? The best place tto start is within your own company - colleagues, support.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly. Regards Nic
You also need to understand that ISPF options are customized to each site -- "S.ap" may mean something to you, but since we don't work at your site, we have no idea what is being invoked here. Even a site that has the same software may invoke it by a different method -- so "S.ap" would not apply even at a site with the same software installed.
