In the same source file where your menu resides, do you have the QQ source?
DDS menus are created using source type MNUDDS and MNUCMD. The first
source's name is the menu name (usually) and the second source member will
be the first's with a QQ appended.
If I have a menu called MENU1, the MENU1QQ source looks like this:
0002 wrksplf output(*print)
My menu would be created with two functioning options: 1=wrksplf and 2 =
You can access and change these options when in SDA with F10 and F13.
You'll notice on the compile screen when exiting SDA, at the top, it will
look something like this:
Exit SDA Menus
File . . . . . . : QMNUSRC DDS member . . . . . : MENU1
Library . . . . : WORKLIB Commands member . . . : MENU1QQ
I hope that's the right answer for you question.

Subject: Compile of Menu program
When changing a Menu program (type MNUDDS) and using option #17 (changing
using SDA) the program is compiled but the Message Description file (*MSGF)
is cleared of my previous commands.
From what I have read all types associated with menus are created each time
it is compiled.
Is there any way to get around this issue because I do not see any options
to change during a compile.
