Question:

What is the order of a users ROLE groups?  What determines the sequence of ROLEs in the user's ROLE list that is created at LOGON time using the X(ROL) records?

Answer:

The characters that can be used to create a ROLE record are alphanumeric and US National Characters.  The sort order is based on the EBCDIC representation of the character, so US National Characters are first, followed by alphabetical and then numeric.
