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.

Or do you mean to restore the output if it has been archived.

Can you not just view it online if it has been archived.

But, unless you learn quickly to state your question explicitly then noone will be able to help you.

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.
