 The   Convert  Network   Attributes   command  converts   the   network
 attributes to  an outfile.  NETATRP  is the name of the  outfile in the
 library  you specify.   One record with  unique fields for  each of the
 network attributes is  written to the file.   This allows a  comparison
 to be  made with  other uses of  CVTNETA at different  dates.   See the
 CMPNETA command.

 The  model  file used  is TAANETFP  in TAATOOL  with  a format  name of

 When the output  file is created,  it is specified  as ALWUPD(*NO)  and
 ALWDLT(*NO).  You cannot  change a record or delete a record.   You can
 clear the  member or use the default  REPLACE(*YES) to replace the data
 in an existing member.

 The command allows use by the *PUBLIC user.

 A typical solution would  be to have  a unique member  for of the  same
 file each  time CVTNETA is  run.  The  member name could  represent the
 date  the command  was  run  such as  NETyymmdd.   This  would  allow a
 simple use of CMPNETA.

 A typical command would be:

              CVTNETA      OUTLIB(xxx) OUTMBR(NET051101)

 The  network attributes would be converted  to one record in the member
 named of the NETATRP file in named library.

 CVTNETA escape messages you can monitor for

 None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

 Command parameters                                    *CMD

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

    OUTMBR        The member of  the NETATRP file  to be used.   If  the
                  member does  not exist, it is  added.  The  default is
                  NETATRP.   Only  one record  is  written with  a field
                  for each network attribute.

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

                  *YES  is  the  default  to  clear  the  member  before
                  adding records.

                  *NO may  be specified to  add to the  existing member.
                  The   CMPNETA  command  will  reject  any  request  to
                  compare a member with more than one record.




 The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

      DUPTAADBF       Duplicate data base file
      SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message
      SNDESCINF       Send escape information
      SNDESCMSG       Send escape message


 None, the tool is ready to use.

 TAANETFQ is  created  from  the TAANETFP  source  and  is used  by  the
 CMPNETA command.
