    Can you provide some more details on what you are looking to do, what release you are using and what the macro looks like?

    I need to automate the system to go to different screens and capture a screenshot. Collect the screenshot in 1 batch and print this via Adobe Acrobat.
    No other system to be used but only the AS400 itself.
    The problem is that the "Collect Screen" function is not supported in macros. It is only available as a single command.

    Look into the strcpyscn/endcpyscn commands:

    STRCPYSCN  SRCDEV(*REQUESTER) OUTDEV(*NONE)
                 OUTFILE(UTILGLS/COPYSCR)     

    that will output screens to a file.

    It is quite cryptic but does exactly what you are asking for
