You can retrieve the actual message from the job. If you are able to pull in the MSGDTA then you can pull in the MSG.

Thanks -

RCVMSG returns "CUSTFILETESTLIB *N"

RTVMSGD returns " File &1 in library &2 in use. "

I would like to return the following string:

' File CUSTFILE in library TESTLIB in use. "

Is this possible - to merge the text message with the variables?

Thanks

Don't use RTVMSGD, that just pulls it from QCPFMSG message file. See these parameters for RCVMSG:
MSGDTA
MSGDTALEN

Well I tried this again and it worked well - it returned CPF3202.

RTVMSGD MSGID(&RTNCODE) FSTLVL(&ERRMSG)

I am using the above to retrieve the error text.

It returns

' File &1 in library &2 in use. "

How can I get the variables to be replaced with their values?

For example

"File CUSTFILE in library TESTLIB in use"

Thanks

I have a CL with MONMSG(CPF9999) as the first line.

MONMSG MSGID(CPF9999) EXEC(GOTO CMDLBL(ABENDPGM))



At the end of the CL, I would like to retrieve the actual MSGID which
caused the problem (NOT the CPF9999 ID, but the msg previous to that).

ABENDPGM:
RCVMSG MSGID(&RTNCODE)

I tried the obvious *PREV to get the previous msgID, but no luck.

For example, I want to retrieve CPF3202 "File CUSTFILE in library TESTLIB
in use".

Any ideas?

Thanks
