Thank you Barbara and everyone that responded.
I have been working with service programs almost since they were available,
but not calling them from a CL program that did not have the service
program in the library list.
I am now wiser than before again thanks to the amazing people on this list.

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Another possible advantage of *IMMED is that if some service programs
take a long time to load, all the startup time is at the beginning.
Users often can forgive a long initial load time more than they can
forgive a sudden lag while they have started working with an application.

The other side to this issue is that for some service programs whose
procedures are infrequently used, such as service programs related to
exceptions, it might be better to delay loading them if they have a long
load time.
