RE: chgdtaara command



fixed

Since this was posted to the -L list, I figured that, as others pointed out,
the CHGDTAARA command was what you wanted.

But, in a program, it's a matter of

IN *Lock [DataArea];
(change the value of the field(s) as defined in the data area's
definition)
OUT [DataArea];

How can I see the current data in a data area and change the data by
keying over the current values?

I recall using a MODDTAARA command to do this. Is that an OS400 command?

Does OS400 provide a method to do this?



Thanks!
