Where is the object of a menu?
Our ERP software vendor created some menus in our iSeries. For example, when I type GO IBSDI, the corresponding menu will be showing up.
But I cannot find where the object IBSDI is located. I am the system administrator.
I know the basic things of RPG, CL, CMD, DSPF, PRTF.
Is there any trick about menu?
Thanks for any help,

    Use WRKOBJ IBSDI the same as you would for any external object.

    You may need to try WRKOBJ *all/IBSDI  (or *allusr instead of *all) in the unlikly case the object is not in your current library list. But, in that case the Go command would require require a qualifer as well.

    I have encountered ERP packages that created menus within a program instead of using traditional menus, but if that was the case they would have messed with the Go command.  You might also want to search for the GO command to make sure that the vendor didn't create an alternative command (which would be a real pain if they did).

    Hi TheRealRaven & azohawk,
    I tried WRKOBJ *ALL/IBSDI and WRKOBJ *ALLUSR/IBSDI. Nothing showing up. I check the object GO. Here is the result:
    Object      Type      Library             Attribute        Text     
    GO          *CMD      QSYS                                    Go to Menu
    GO          *CMD      QSYSV5R3M0                      GO TO MENU
    GO          *CMD      QSYSV5R4M0                      Go to Menu
    Seems the vendor didn't create their own Go.

    I didn't mention that, after I run a program S800, then I can use GO IBSDI. Seems S800 set up the environment. But after running this program, I still couldn't find the object IBSDI.

    Have you spoken to your vendor?

    Not yet. I will do. But from my as/400 knowledge, I never encountered this kind of problem. I am very curious about this magic.

    If (1) the only GO command is supplied by the system, and (2) there is no object named IBSDI, and (3) the GO IBSDI command works only after running S800, then the vendor is your only reasonable source.

    Of course, it's not likely to do much good, nor would it have necessarily done much good had you found the
    IBSDI *MENU object originally. If it was a compiled object, you probably couldn't have done much to it unless you also had the source code. Distributing source with ERP isn't usually a good idea.

    Thank you guys. Next time, I will ask the vendor about the trick and will post here the result.

    Is this by chance running within a menu system provided by the same vendor?

    Hi Splat, After running S800, finally the system will start a menu which is provided by the vendor. This menu has as/400 style. I can run command at the bottom. I am not sure what you mean.

    brucema, I was wondering if your vendor had created a menu system mimicking iSeries menus, with its own processes for handling the GO command.

    I'm back to suggesting you contact the vendor.  I've run out of ideas on what could be going on.  Sorry.
