Specify *PGMQ for the reply message queue. Then use the QMHRCVM API using the message key returned from QMHSNDM to get the reply message. In looking at the documentation for QMHSNDM, you should be able to specify *SYSOPR for the message queue. -----Original Message----- From: Titus Kruse [mailto:t_kruse@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, January 19, 2005 9:11 AM To: C400-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [C400-L] Re: Sending inquiry message in batch job Ok, let me ask a last question: When I send an inquiry message to QSYSOPR, a reply message queue must also be specified. Which message queue would you prefer? "Ulrich, Kent" <Kent.Ulrich@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> schrieb im Newsbeitrag news:3C334ACE3F6FEA4987F48F13ADD8D7AE0248DE1B@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx You can send it to QSYSOPR. Alternately you could define a message queue for certain messages and use it. I have a data area that I use which contains a set of message queue names for specific uses. For example, a message queue for program exceptions etc. which is connected to a designated person.
