William,

You can create a non-MAPICS menu that will do what you
want.  You can use the MAPICS command to call the menu
option in whichever environment you want and then
return to the non-MAPICS menu.  I have used this
method frequently. This is the MAPICS command:
                           Startup MAPICS/DB (MAPICS) 
                         
                                                      
                         
 Type choices, press Enter.                           
                         
                                                      
                         
 Application ID . . . . . . . . .                     
         
  Environment . . . .  .  .  .  . .                   
                          
                                                      
                         
                            Additional Parameters     
                         
                                                      
                         
 Main menu option . . . . . . . .  00-99              
          
 Second-level menu option . . . .  01-99              
          
 Third-level menu option  . . . .  01-99              
          
 Exit MAPICS/DB after first job    0             0=No
Exit, 1=Exit             
                                                      
                         
                                                      
                         
                                                      
                         
                                                      
                         
                                                      
                         
                                                      
                         
                                                      
                         
                                                      
                  Bottom 
 F3=Exit   F4=Prompt   F5=Refresh   F12=Cancel  
F13=How to use this display    
 F24=More keys                                        
                         
The command for P.O. inquiry would be MAPICS 'MM' '06'
'03' '01' '1'.  This will call the P.O. inquiry in
environment MM and then return.
