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

You start by creating a scheduled job (WRKJOBSCDE) to run at 1600 every Friday. Call a new CL program. This new program can SNDMSG to a list of User Profiles or SNDDST to a list of email addresses.

    How many employees are we looking at? a few or a few hundered? There may be an easier way than sending from the as400. Maybe using a PC and the task manager. I will say this can be a tough thing to resolve. We tried a lot of things to get employees to enter thier time sheets on-line here. They always forget. 1. You can try sending a break message but they may just hit enter to get rid of it. 2. Sending an e-mail the may forget to check before going home on Friday. The other issue is they may be out sick or using a vacation day and cannot enter it. What we did to cut down on the problem was if it was not entered on Friday their supervisor got an e-mail during Monday payroll edit of everyone in the department who did not do it by Friday. Then they had to explain why it was not done on time.

    The error message is as clear as it could be, do you really need us to tell you why you got the message?

    I tried WRKJOBSCDE command and got the following error message: Then have someone who has the appropriate authority do it. We can't help you with that. We can't grant authority for you. Tom
