I would like to be able to view the LDA for a job that is running on the system. Is there any way of doing that without having to create a report?

    ...without having to create a report?

    Can you explain what creating a report has to do with seeing a *LDA from a secondary job?

    Viewing a *LDA can be done in various ways. The possible ways depend on what your OS version is, what the programming is in the job that owns the *LDA, what preparation your job streams do before you need to see their *LDAs and/or whether you have "untrusted" code available that can bypass normal OS protections.

    (Note that "untrusted" refers to how the programming was coded and created from the perspective of the OS. For a product such as PeekPlus, it doesn't mean "untrustworthy". That is fine product that can provide a very useful service.)

    Before V5R4, the most common ways that this kind of thing was done were through either message break-handler programs or the STRSRVJOB command. It's possible to make those both work in V5R4 and later, but the preferred way is probably through the Call Job Interrupt Program (QWCJBITP) API.

    Tom,
    Thank you for the response. AS usual you have a solution that I will explore.
    I forgot to put this in the original message but we are on 7.1.
    By a report I was thinking about adding a single line O spec to print the data in the LDA that I am interested in. I didn't want to change a bunch of programs for this testing. I like your suggestion much better.
    Thank you.
