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

It is better to go for AS400 programming. As u r B.TECH(IT) and a good employer searches for those people who have good IT background regarding programming jobs. Specially for iSeries (AS400) RPG400 Programming certification. From this u will learn the followings:
1. Write an enquiry program using RPG400 and create display files using SDA.
2. Write a report program using RPG400 and code printer file DDS.
3. Write data validation routines and errors.
4. Write a file maintenance program.
5. Use program calling and parameter passing to link programs.
6. Code structured programs in a contemporary RPG400 style.
7. Amend existing programs to add further code.
8. Use externally described files in RPG400.
9. Use structured development techniques.

@ Good Luck

    Shouldn't references RPG400 be to RPGILE or RPG-IV? Phil

    Yes, RPG400 should definitely be a minor element. As a limited and effectively obsolete subset, it should only be included after ILE RPG (RPG IV) is already understood. Tom
