I have a program that does SNDPGMMSG then ends. In the calling program, how do I get the message into a variable? I thought it was RTVMSG but I'm not getting anywhere.

RTVMSG gets a message from a message file.

RCVMSG gets a message from a (program or non-program) message queue.

Now which one do you think you need?

You'll also need to ensure the message was sent to a program message queue that is still active otherwise you won't be able to get it without the message key (without resorting to other techniques).
