Issue/Introduction

Problem:
I have coded the exit, CTCOPYUX, to maintain the "last used information" from the input tape on the output tape.  It is working for most tapes that are being copied but not all, why?
Environment: 
Copycat 12.0, with CTCOPYUX exit coded to maintain the "last used information".
Cause:
The exit is coded correctly and is not the problem.
Workaround:
If you code the CTCOPYUX exit to maintain the "last used information", and you copy a tape on the same day as it was created, the "last used information" will not be maintained as requested.  This is the design of the product.  If you wait at least 1 day before you do the copy the "last used information" will be maintained.
