    Hi Kevin,

    Parameter RC in the authorization trace of ST01

    RC = 4 indicates that Authorization is unsucessful

    RC=4 means the user has the authorization object in their buffer, but the specific field values in the authorization check do not match what is specified in the user's assigned security roles.

    *The return code shows whether or not the authorization code was

    successful. *

    - *ST01 Return Code *

    *0 *

    Authorization check passed

    *1 *

    No Authorization

    *2 *

    Too many parameters for authorization check

    *3 *

    Object not contained in user buffer

    *4 *

    No profile contained in user buffer

    *6 *

    Authorization check incorrect

    *7,8,9 *

    Invalid user buffer

      RC 12 means authorizaiton failed and RC 4 means user's profile does not contain the value.
