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

If you are talking about an as/400 message file then use WRKMSGF. Enter the message file name and library. Then you can scroll through the messages and expand them for further info. If you want a printable list try DSPMSGD  RANGE(*FIRST *LAST) MSGF(MYLIB/MYMSGF) DETAIL(*BASIC)OUTPUT(*PRINT) If this is an Outlook MSG file, then check out this link for programs that can open the file.

    You can open an msg file in Notepad, but can not see attachment/picture(s). Also may have some garbage characters present there. Or you can try a 3rd party tool like MSG file viewer/mail viewer which can help to open the same. This is here: https://www.coolutils.com/MailViewer.

    Command GO CMDMSGF will take you to a menu where all commands related to Message files are listed. I think you need to have a look at WRKMSGF.

    If you have TAATOOLS you can use the SCNEXTMSGF utility to scan for a string or CVTMSGF command to export the *MSGF to a database file.

    shaddock@: thanks for the tip on the CVTMSGF. I'll have to try that out if they will give me authority to the tools. Only the head of department can use it currently.
