Question:
I've just completed the implementation of ACF2 R16 on one of my production systems and when a user runs the ACFRPTSL utility, it fails with error message INVALID FIELD NAME IN SFLDS PARAMETER - DEPARTMENT. The field is defined in my USERCFDE.
 
 @CFDE  DEPARTMENT,USRDEPT,CHAR,LIST=SECURITY+ACCOUNT+LEADER,          X00200000
               ALTER=SECURITY+ACCOUNT,FLAGS=NULL,PRTN=1,RRTN=1,        X00210000
               GROUP=0                                                  00220000

 The account/LID that runs the report only has the AUDIT privilege. The JOB ran fine with R15.  Why did it work under ACF2 R15? 
Answer:
RO95836 added validation to the ACFRPTSL report based on the ACFFDR authority.  The person running the job now has to match the authority of the LIST= parameter or they will fail.
