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 Fiditalia , Milano, 02- 4301-2494 -----Messaggio originale----- Da: Debbie Meza-Zerlin [mailto:dmeza@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Inviato: mercoledì 2 luglio 2003 17.03 A: cobol400-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx 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.
