This environment variable forces the user account name to be stored as part of the saved list identifier.
As per normal environment variable.
For information on how lists are stored, see the sections on JBCLISTFILE and List Storage.
Lists stored in jBASEWORK have an id of the form SEL*UserName*ListName
unless there is a Q-pointer or F-pointer called POINTER-FILE that references
If JBCLISTFILE is not set but POINTER-FILE can be opened, then lists are stored in POINTER-FILE and have have an item-id of ListName.
Otherwise lists have an id of the form ListName unless JBCLISTID=1, in which case the item id is SEL*UserName*ListName. Note that on Windows asterisks cannot be part of file names. So if JBCLISTFILE points to a directory, the asterisk separator is represented as ]2a.
When lists have the user name as part of the id, then the user name can be specified as an optional argument to GET-LIST and EDIT-LIST.
