Hi Leslie, thank you for responding. I also received info from James
Shanks. First, I am the only user on the system.
I am user root. When I did the ovwls -G it showed the owner as root and
2 maps as I described. I first changed my map to default and then
deleted the test1 map. I then exited out of the GUI and back in via
"netview" command. Presto back came the test1 map. I did not use the
-map option. the /usr/OV/app-defaults/OVw has default as startup map.
I have not found any other app-defaults in any user $HOME area "yet".
Is there any way to trace where it gets its startup map info from?
Thank you James and Leslie for your help.
