We do use a CL already. The problem is that all the 25+ companies that sit on the same server share the package program code. We would need to enable and disable per company (i.e. file/library).

Also to change a production program causes a lot of admin overhead these days with all the approval boards, committees and such.

One option is to use a CL program for your trigger that accepts and passes the record buffer to a called program. Then you could change the called program to terminate immediately without ever having to change the CL trigger program.

Not sure how efficient this would be with large volumes of record changes...but its seems like it would work ;-) We currently use the CL trigger trick to allow us to make changes to the called program without deactivation...

We have to set up triggering for a bunch of files (15 files in 30
instances). I can live with having to find a spot when the system is
down to add the tiggers.

But we would like to turn on and off the activation of triggers more
or less at will. Status *ENABLED and *DISABLED should work nicely.

The problem is that this operation seems to require private access to
the file almost as much as ADDPFTRG does - is that really so?

Is there in that case another better way to dynamically switch
triggers on and off?
