You can use the OMITOBJ parameter on your IBM SAVLIB command to accomplish
what you are looking for. This will allow you to omit objects, such as
F0911* from the save. Note that I added an asterisk to the end of the
F0911, because the OMITOBJ allows a generic entry, and thus you can also
skip the logical files associated with F0911 from being saved. You probably
will find that an omit of the F42199 and F43199 file groups would also be
helpful to your process.
