Drop the TYPE(*ALL) and leave the default *BASIC alone. That should do it. An
outfile will handle only one TYPE() at a time; trying to get *ALL into a
single outfile won't work. Each TYPE() that supports an outfile has a
different file format.

What kind of OUTFILE do I have to use?
If you do not create an output file prior to running DSPUSRPRF, an
OUTFILE will be created with the correct format etc by the system. For
> DSPUSRPRF USRPRF(*ALL) OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) OUTFILE(QTEMP/XYZ)
Output file XYZ created in library QTEMP.
Member XYZ added to output file XYZ in library QTEMP.
What I've found is that you can only specify ONE user profile at a time, and
get an output as a spooled fiel, or outfile.
Display all you're userid's, and work them one at a time.
Warning; If you use TYPE *ALL, you get a LOT of information. My own ID
prints out 50 pages.

Michael, there is a canned report which will give you the specific
information you want. It's called Print User Profile (PRTUSRPRF). you can
find a full description of it in the "Tips and Tools for Securing Your
AS/400" publication (SC41-3300-00) if you have the hard copy Docs. Anyway
this report will give you several pieces of information that you should
compare, specifically the User Class and the Special Authorities. Each User
Class has default Special Authorities assigned, which change at Security
level 30 and above.
If you can get your hands on that publication I'm sure you'll find other
useful tools to make your job a little easier. Another reference book that I
like to refer to is "Audit, Control, and Security of the IBM AS/400" by Ernst
& Young printed in 1995. The book is based on V2R3, but most of the basics
I've found both of these to be very helpful when trying to explain security
requirements with management at the and of an audit. Ooops, the cats out of
the bag, I'm one of those IT audit people.
I hope that this helps,
