The *EXT message queue only applies to interactive jobs. From a batch job you need send the message to a user or workstation message queue.

I know, this is not a typical C-question. But in this group are the programmers. I'm sending an inquiry-message by API QMHSNDPM with type *INQ to the external message-queue *EXT and receive the answer wirh API QMHRCVPM. When the job is running interactive, the user can enter a reply for the inquiry-message. But running in batch, the default reply was send. This is documented by IBM in the API guide. But how do I send an inquiry in a batch-job? Like SNDUSRMSG does it. I've tried QMHSNDM (nonprogram message), but this API didn't send the message to the external message queue.
