Terry, Thanks for the help up to this point. I have to ask one more thing. When I use the CL example you sent me to send the completion message it does not work if the CL is called from a ILE C program (The CL works fine if called from another CL). I have noticed that the message is shown on the c terminal screen (I happened to print a debug message to the screen). The program does not typically write to stdout and I end it with exit(0) to prevent the c terminal from being shown. Could the exit(0) be part of the problem or do need to implement the CL eq. in ILE C (I would need help if the answer is yes) ?

AA1722 is the basic way of doing it. Note in particular TOPGMQ(*PRV). AA1723 simply forwards a completion message from a called program. This is what you might do in a program which is a trivial wrapper around another program which does all the real work. ===== start AA1722 ===== pgm SNDPGMMSG MSGID(CPF9897) MSGF(QCPFMSG) MSGDTA('AA1722 + completed successfully') TOPGMQ(*PRV) + MSGTYPE(*COMP) endpgm ===== start AA1723 ===== pgm dcl &msgid *char 7 dcl &msgdta *char 2000 dcl &msgf *char 10 dcl &msgflib *char 10 CALL PGM(AA1722) RCVMSG MSGTYPE(*COMP) MSGDTA(&MSGDTA) MSGID(&MSGID) + MSGF(&MSGF) MSGFLIB(&MSGFLIB) SNDPGMMSG MSGID(&MSGID) MSGF(&MSGFLIB/&MSGF) + MSGDTA(&MSGDTA) TOPGMQ(*PRV) MSGTYPE(*COMP) endpgm ===== end source files ===== Let me know if you need help translating these techniques into C.
