I'd like to thank everyone for their responses...

I've decided to start running the Mapics Backup every night and used the
post command to submit the cl program I wrote to save the other libraries
and files to tape.

We don't have anything other than Mapics on our AS/400 so if they aren't
in Mapics they aren't doing anything else so I'll keep ending QINTER.

Now my next question may be a bit more complicated...

Everything I know about writing a CL program I've learned from picking
out bits and pieces of information from the book " Control Language
Programming for the AS/400 2nd edition". I haven't had the chance to go
through the book cover to cover so needless to say I've only learned as
much as I've needed to get done what I need to do. This is our first AS/400
and all of my experience until we got this was on Vaxes running VMS.

So how would you do this....

Also.. how would I run the Application Log report from a Cl program in the
pre-backup
command file? We don't have 3rd shift AS/400 Operator that can do this stuff and
I don't really relish the idea of logging in from home in the middle of the 
night
just to
get an Application Log report. I'd like to get a print out of this, but the 
Mapics
backup
clears the file each time it runs.

Thanks for all of the help!
