What causes the SQL7008 error?

What causes the SQL7008 error?

When connecting via an ODBC data source to a non-IBM database such as SQLBASE, I can create an access query, and use the find/replace capabilities to find a text string within a field and replace it.

On the iSeries I can find, but I get an error when trying to replace:
[IBM][ISeries Access ODBC Driver] [DB2 UDB]sql7008-S.APMAST in SPFILES not valid for operation. (#-7008). Do you know why?

SQL7008 is most of the time caused by trying to update a file that is not journaled or you do not have authority to its journal.

Journal the file using command STRJRNPF (files on iSeries are not automatically journaled unless defined by using SQL).
