Default Menu standards

How do I change the default menu layout template that is displayed after taking SDA option #2 to reflect our company standards? In other words; After typing the command "STRSDA 2", the Design Menus prompt screen is displayed requesting a menu source file, library and menu name. Once that information is supplied and enter is pressed, the next screen is Specify Menu Functions with a message at the bottom stating that menu (whatever) is new. When I press Enter again, I am presented with a new screen that has a default menu style presented with the menu name in the upper left corner as well as centered on the top line. There is a constant: "Select one of the following:" and then 10 numbered options listed below that. I want to change this default menu to reflect our company format and standards. How do I accomplish this?

I was unable to find a direct answer to your question. However, if it were me, I’d:
o Create and save a prototype Menu that contains all your company’s standards and default values
o Create a command and clp that would be your new create menu command (CRTMENU ?)
o Include an input parm on this command that would accept the name of the menu you want to create, and the library where the source should be located
o In the clp that gets called, copy the source of the prototype menu to the name & location specified in the input parm
o Finally, have the clp call STRSDA using option 2, specifying the name of the source member you want to modify
