    Dear Wendell, Thank you for submitting this Db2 Utilities Suite for z/OS enhancement request. After careful review and consideration, development has provided their feedback as follows:

    The Db2 UNLOAD and LOAD utilities can be run on PBG table spaces today. It is not clear from the information provided in this requirement of what the restriction and context is. We are declining this enhancement request - but do submit a new enhancement request with more supportive details and specifics, as needed.

    We appreciate your input to the Db2 Utilities Suite for z/OS development team. And we hope that you will continue to submit enhancement suggestions for improvements as customer feedback is a key component to shaping the future direction of Db2 Utilities Suite for z/OS.
