Hello, Debbie. It's just my opnionio, but:
*a* change of a part of a key: you may 
        *1* delete logical 
        *2*   use SQL to update PF 
        *3* rebuild the keys
*b* in my shops wy use a generic program that is called with a parameter
(char(132)) containing the comment to be produced: it attaches date, time,
user and writes the string to a file whose structure is (date, time, user,
comment). I suggest you to add program-name also. It's a very simple system
for logging, but it's useful. 

Sincerely

Domenico Finucci

Oggetto: Changing a Key on using AS400 COBOL & displays


I need to change one field in a key with the rest of the data remaining
the same.  What is the best way to accomplish list. I'm writing a batch
program using start, read, write, etc.?
 
Also, is there a way to get display messages to appear as a sysout type
of mini report other than in the "display program message" mode when I
use debug.  It appears that I need to write my display message to a
report.  Could you give me some suggestions on what to do.
 
I'd appreciate any help you could give me.  Thanks.
