I want to restore objects from the Save file on the tape. Is there any way to restore objects without restoring save files on the system?
Absolutely. When you save objects to a SAVE FILE and then copy that SAVE FILE to a tape using the SAVSAVFDTA command.
<excerpt from the SAVSAVFDTA HELP text>
The Save File Data (SAVSAVFDTA) command saves the contents of a save file to tape, optical, or diskette media. This command saves the save data in the save file to the device in a way that allows you to restore objects directly from the device.
Just use RSTOBJ to restore an object.
