System checks for matching routing data starting at sequence 1.  Usually
you have a sequence 9999 catch-all entry of *ANY.
This allows sort of generic matching on routing data.  For example:

Seq #           Routing Data

50      DEPT5
51      DEPT50
52      DEPT501
53      DEPT502
54      DEPT503

        I appreciate the answers to my last question very much!  It's
nice to have this resource out there.  Another question please:

        What exactly does the sequence # in the routing entries display
have to do with adding new entries.  Such as:

        seq nbr 200     compare 'QCMDB'
                9999    compare *any

        If I add an entry should it be above or below the QCMDB in the
sequence?  It's a live sbs and not too much experimental ability on the

        Thanks much in advance,
