I just checked, and indeed my "meanderings around" in FILEPKG last week fixed this problem.  It did so by, in effect, giving GLOBALRESOURCES a filepkgtype of (TYPE RESOURCES), which seems to be the way to make a "synonym" in the filepkgtype category.  Shouldn''t this be documented in the IRM?'

Workaround: The following ADVISE seems to get aroud the problem':'
             ''(COND ((EQ TYPE ''GLOBALRESOURCES)'
                     (RETURN ''RESOURCES))))
