TAA Tools

The Convert Message Queue  Attributes command builds an outfile  of one
or  more Message Queue  objects.  The  outfile created is  named MSGQP.
The  outfile  may  then be  queried  for consistency  or  searching for
specific  values  such  as  those  Message  Queue   objects  containing

The  model file  is TAAMSIIP  with a  format name  of MSGQR.    You can
display the model file with DSPFMT TAAMSIIP.

You  must have *ALLOBJ authority to use  a library qualifier of *ALL or

A typical command would be:

             CVTMSGQA     MSGQ(xxx) OUTLIB(QTEMP)

The named Message Queue  objects would be  converted to the MSGQP  file
in QTEMP.  There would be one record for each Message Queue.

CVTMSGQA escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9891    No *MSGQ object types in the library.

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   MSGQ          The  qualified  name  of   the  Message  Queue  to  be
                 converted.   *ALL is the default.   A specific name or
                 a generic name may also be entered.

                 The  library  value  defaults  to  *USRLIBL.    *LIBL,
                 *CURLIB, *ALLUSR, or *ALL may also be used.

   OUTLIB        The library  in which the  MSGQP file will  be placed.
                 The  default is  *LIBL.   If the  MSGQP file  does not
                 already exist, a library must be specified.

   OUTMBR        The  member  of the  MSGQP file  to be  used.   If the
                 member does not  exist, it is  added.  The default  is

   REPLACE       A  *YES/*NO value  for  whether the  member should  be
                 cleared  before writing records into  it.  The default
                 is *YES.

                 *NO may  be  specified  to  add  records  to  existing
