Dear Vincent, you raised two interesting issues: #1 - printing more than 132 characters per line #2 - security breach concerns raised by giving command line access to a BPCS user Here's our response to #1 ..................................................... .........( 2nd response arriving in separate message ) When a BPCS menu option is selected, the menu program processes some system functions (like overriding the print file to the 132 character report width) and then calls the program listed for that menu option. If you include an OVRPRTF statement in the CL program that runs a query, you could then change the report width from 132 characters to the specific line length needed for that query.

All queries are run from CL programs. When these queries are run from the menu, the report width setup in SYS041D overrides the report width of these queries and the output gets truncated to 132 character. When the CL(query) program is executed from command line the report width in SYS041D is ignored and we are able to produce reports greater than 132 columns. By giving the user access to command line we give rise to an security breach, by granting the user rights to run any program from command line like (ACR100D1, INV100 et etc). How can we print reports > 132 chrs from the menu without having to compromise on the width of these reports and access to command line. Does anyone have a solution to this problem ?.
