Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to give more information.
Sounds like you have an RPG program that uses a DSPF.
On the DSPF you use F4=PROMPT.
Do you want to pass data to the F$ prompt program or do you want to return information from that program?

    You can not pass parameters to a file.

    Please describe where you see the <F4> key. I would normally think that a question like this might be related to passing a parameter value into a query over a PF. And DSPF <F4> seems like a real good guess, too. Otherwise, I can't really think of a good description of what the question means. Tom

    If you use the P(rompt) F(unction) F4 key on IBM maintenance screens you can pass a parameter on the command line at the bottom of the display. You will need to provide the Parameter keyword and the value. eg OUTQ(myoutq)
