Dear Qin
    Device name for SNA client no 'QPADEV00XX' is not changed for any user. 
this numer is an random number and automatical generated by AS/400. if you want 
to define a unchanged number, the only way is input your device name in client 
software connect propertiy. if your client OS is windows 9x english version, 
you can input the defined workstation ID in IBM client access software, or 
useing  the third software connect AS/400. example for ATC software.
    By the way, we are on BPCS V6.0.02

Wish your good luck.
