Here's a trick we use frequently. It will work for most, possibly all, MAPICS jobs that are submitted from the menus:
Put the appropriate job queue on hold, so the job won't start. Submit the program from the menu. Make a copy of the JOBACT file. Release the job queue.
Examine the JOBACT file. You'll find a record that identifies the program to be called. The complete LDA is in that record, and you should be able to figure out how to set the LDA. You'll also need to start and stop MAPICS, and you actually call a different program with the one you want to run as a parm. It's a bit annoying, but it works. Here's a sample that runs the MO archive:
CALL PGM(AXZLDA0R) PARM(*CURR 000000 *LAST 000 +
&LDA *RTV &RTCD)
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 6 4)) VALUE('0000')
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 20 11)) VALUE('WU PA00C102')
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 31 11)) VALUE('0202020 25')
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 42 11)) VALUE('02275 2')
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 59 11)) VALUE('02270600000')
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 70 11)) VALUE('20110110 3')
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 85 3)) VALUE(&SITE)
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 110 11)) VALUE('AMIPJK 1111')
CHGVAR VAR(%SST(&LDA 127 2)) VALUE('11')
CALL PGM(AXZPSJ) PARM(&LDA 'AMIPJL')
It can also be helpful to submit jobs multiple times with different parameters and then examine all the JOBACT records. This lets you see what changes in the LDA when you select different parameters.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Aruments To Program Call For Schedule Purge
We want to automate the REP 'Schedule Purge' and from the menu I find that the program Appears to be AMQC40.
It takes an argument of the LDA.
Does anyone out there have any idea if this is the correct program, how the LDA would be populated, or how I would find out (Infor support do not have the info) ?
Or alternatively is there anyone out there who has automated this process and can give me a few hints and tips.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
