 WRKSYSVAL2      WORK SYSTEM VALUE 2                    TAASEHW

 The  Work System  Value  2  command allows  an  entry  of a  string  of
 characters such  as 'LMT' or  'LIMIT' and scans the  system value names
 and  text  for  matches.   A  work  display appears  with  the matching
 system values  and  options  to display  or  'work with'.    WRKSYSVAL2
 simplifies accessing a  system value when you know part  of the name or
 a word in the text description.

 A typical command would be:

              WRKSYSVAL2  STRING(LMT)

 All  system values that contain LMT in  either the system value name or
 text description would appear in a subfile.

 The Display option  is done by invoking  the system DSPSYSVAL  command.
 The  'Work  with' option  is  done  by  invoking the  system  WRKSYSVAL

 Security considerations

 Any user who is authorized to DSPSYSVAL can use the Display option.

 The  user must  be  authorized to  CHGSYSVAL to  see or  use  the 'Work
 with' option.

 If some system  values are locked  down via the  SST/DST function,  the
 'Work with'  option  will fail  (done via  WRKSYSVAL)  for some  system
 values.  The  error is monitored for by  WRKSYSVAL.  See the discussion
 with the CHKLCKSYSV tool.

 The  sub program TAASEHWC3  may be called to  refresh the TAASYSOS file
 in  TAATOOL if  the  file  does  not  exist or  does  not  contain  any
 records.   This file will contain  the output of the  CVTSYSVAL command
 and  is  refreshed  as part  of  the install  of  the  TAA Productivity
 Tools.  The  file is  used to  determine the system  values that  exist
 for  each release  and  should not  be used  to  determine the  current
 value of a system value.

 The  TAASEHWC3  program  adopts  the  user  profile  of QSECOFR.    The
 program is available  to the *PUBLIC,  but must be  passed the  correct
 parameter value to run.   The only function the program  performs is to
 refresh  the  TAASYSOS  file.    This  provides  a  faster  access  for
 WRKSYSVAL2  and  other tools  that  need to  know  the current  list of
 available system values.

 WRKSYSVAL2 escape messages you can monitor for

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

                  text description are  converted to  upper case  before
