Is this the debugger that you start with STRDBG?

Does the system statement execute? If you put a breakpoint on the system statement, does that stop?

You could do TRCJOB to see if the called program executes at all.

Hi All
I have a program which is called from a main program by the "system" function:
system("CALL PGMNAME");
Does anybody know why the debugger doesn't stop on a breakpoint set in the PGMNAME? I have no problem to stop in the calling program. I tried to compile the called program with Activation group *caller but it didn't seem to help.

Thanks in advance.
