What downsides do you see with Triggers?  If used correctly and coded 
correctly, there is very little overhead.

You just have to be sure that you know what you are doing with files that 
have triggers so that you don't shoot yourself in the foot.  Once you do 
that once, you learn your lesson and normally don't do it a second time. 

The benefits of not modifying MAPICS programs, especially the programs 
that update IMHIST more than outweighs any downsides.  Also, if you are 
unsure or don't have source for MAPICS you can still perform the functions 
that you need.

Triggers do have their downsides. I would just look into the IMHIST post
program, look for the write to IMHIST for the PQ or RP then call my 
program
inline or if you want to be more efficient fire off a data queue entry and
process them with another async job that is waiting on the data queue.

Hey MAPICSfans!

I need to call a inhouse CL after an RP or a PQ transactions are
successfully posted.  I have looked in the MAPICS archives and MIDRANGE's
but I was not successful.

Can you give me some ideas?

TIA,
