Process a job under a different library list

This tip walks you through the steps you need to process a job under a different library.

Often times there might be a need to process a job under a different library list -- without using a job description

to set the library list. When the job ends, it is preferable to reset the library list back to its original values. The below should help do the trick.

 /* Purpose: Change Library List, Process And    */ 
   /*          Then Restore Original Library       */  
   /* Note:  Works When User Library List Can    */
 /*    Contain Max. 25 Libraries.          */
 /* Attn:  Include Error Message Monitoring    */
