Hi Group:

My last letter (sent just a while ago) delt with the WHSLC field in both the 
ITEMBL and ITEMASA Mapics files.

In a somewhat related matter, is there an easy way to change the WHSLC fields 
in "many" Items No records with a minimal amount of keystrokes?

The methods I'm aware of (using "two" AS/400 sessions, and the Copy and Paste 
computer functions) are:

1. Use Inventory Management's File Maintenance, the changes can be made to one 
file and copied and pasted to the second file; one record at a time.

2. Similarly, using AS/400 utilities such as Data Base Utility (DBU) or Data 
File Utility (DFU), the the changes can be made to one file and copied and 
pasted to the second file; one record at a time.

Is there a way to write a Query (using Query/400) that can make the WHSLC 
changes to a List of Item Numbers in each file?  I don't believe this can be 
done but I'd like some input on this question.

What about Report Program Generator (RPG)?  I'm not trained in it so I'm not 
aware of its capabilities.  This is probably the tool to use to make changes to 
a group of records in a large DB file.

I look forward to your suggestions and commments.
