The FileList profile provided ( $GETBACK XEDIT ) was rewritten such that it now takes the default system profile ( PROFFLST XEDIT ) and modifies it rather than providing a completely customised profile as before. This makes the profile compatible with Year 2000 changes implemented in the system profile and removes a potential Year 2000 compliancy issue. The profile in question is only used when the ACCEXT PACKAGE is available, it has no useful function when using the RECOVER PACKAGE only and can be discarded in that case. You do not need to implement this update if you do not make use of the ACCEXT PACKAGE as will be the case for most external customers.
