Creating a DFU program

I find that if I create an DFU program without an audit report and run it, there is no audit report generated....

How can I know the current status for the user profile, whether a report will be generated or not?

I have the same experiences. Normally UPDDTA creates an audit report. But it seems to work as if there's a hidden CRTAUDRPT(*YES/*NO/*PREV) parameter that defaults to *PREV. After a real DFU program is run by a user and that program specifies not to create an audit report, then any use of UPDDTA by that same user will not create an audit report. Once a DFU program is run by that user that does create an audit report, then UPDDTA also will. Unfortunately, I know of no approved IBM API's that will allow you to control these parameters.
