Description:

Fixes for issues when Browsing tables in RC/Update; GENCNV1E, GENCNV4E or a 378-18 abend.

Solution:

After RO67720 is applied, the GENCNV1E or GENCNV4E messages may be written to the system console and the TSO user's JES message log. The messages may also appear on the user's TSO session terminal if the TSO profile option WTPMSG is set. In addition the column data may be inaccurate on those columns for which the GENCNV* messages are written.

We recommend applying the following list of PTF's to prevent these errors:
