For CRTLF, you can set the printer file to hold by default:<pre> CHGPRTF FILE(QSYS/QPDDSSRC) HOLD(*YES)</pre> You could also change its default *OUTQ. But why? There might be a better alternative depending on what your business problem is. You asked about a specific technical item that might have no good answer. If you describe the <i>business [...]

How is the “ENTER” key mapped?? The PC “ENTER” may be the enter key for the AS400 or it may be the right side “CTRL” key. If the right “CTRL” key is the enter key, then the PC “ENTER” key becomes the “FIELD EXIT” key. Not sure of this software, just check the keyboard configuration.

This has been around for a long time. It is the same as an RPG program. If you modify a file PF, LF, DSPF and reference it in an RPG, CL, COBOL, etc program; you will get a level check. So when you recompiled you got the new definition and all is well.

I came from a mainframe environment. I started with IBM 360 back in 1974. In 1980, I started with a system 38 (in COBOL). It was the best move I made except going to the AS400 (then iSeries). I have (for about a year) moved back to the main frame (I hated it). It would [...]

I just had a similar issue. We had a few devices that were named the same as some user profiles. This caused 2 message queues (same name, different library) to be created. After changing the Client Access (communications, configure) to use Specify Workstation ID and having blanks in that box (rather than the user name), [...]
