Hi Venu,
   we wrote a CL that are called from a BPCS menu, which solved all our
   Query/400 PRTF problems (Keep it Simple: don't change where it is not
   necessary). Here is the code:

      PGM
      MONMSG     MSGID(CPF0000)
      OVRPRTF    FILE(QPQUPRFIL) SECURE(*YES) OVRSCOPE(*CALLLVL)
      WRKQRY
      DLTOVR     FILE(QPQUPRFIL) LVL(*)
      RETURN
      ENDPGM

   I hope this helps

Hello Everybody,

I am trying to eliminate the need for BPCS end-users to access the
WRKQRY command from the iSeries (AS/400) command-line. I need to have
their AS/400 user profiles set so that 'Limit Capabilities' is set to
'*YES'. For this I created a custom CL program that simply has WRKQRY
command in it. I stuck this CL program in a general purpose BPCS menu
that is available to all BPCS end users. However, when they access their
queries through the menu option that I set up, their reports are all
messed up. The outputs get truncated sometimes, or their run-time print
settings (such as specific printer to print to) that they specify in the
query itself at run-time is not honoured. I called up IBM software
help-desk and reported the problem. Based on their suggestion, I sent
them trace and debug logs by invoking WRKQRY both ways (i.e. via command
line and via BPCS menu). The job log showed the following override
command that was in the standard BPCS CL program:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OVRPRTF FILE(*PRTF) PAGESIZE(66) LPI(6) CPI(10)
                 OVRFLW(59) OUTQ(BPCSUSR64/BPCSOUTQ) FORMTYPE('*STD')
COPIES(01)
                 SCHEDULE(*FILEEND) HOLD('*YES') SAVE('*NO') OUTPTY('5')
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Apparently, this override was messing up the WRKQRY settings when
invoked via BPCS menu. Hence I added the DLTOVR FILE (*PRTF) command in
my CL program just before the WRKQRY command and then tested it.
However, it did not seem to make a difference. Any ideas, anybody?

Thanks in Advance!
