RE: Average Cost Help

"Peter,
What is UPDDTA or DBU?"

This is a tool available on the AS400, part of the DFU pack.  Choose this
selection to create and run a program.  You can quickly update an existing file
without having to define a program.  When you press Enter, the Update Data Using
Temporary Program display appears.  You can do this for example:

UPDDTA FILE(ITEMBL)

...this will give you access to maintain the fields in the ITEMBL file.

DBU is a file access utility which can be used to locate and update records from
1 to as many as 4 different files via logical paths or relative record numbers
in any physical file.  Check www.prodatacomputer.com for more information...
