I'm trying to get the error message occurring after a QCMDEXC call and failure. The MI program that makes the QCMDEXC call can use any command, etc. Unfortunately, the only message I can seem to trap are the ones from prompted calls. For example, if I call RPG pgm "A" while "A" is in my stack naturally I get the recursive call error. But I cannot get the error message text in the MI program even though I successfully trap a later error downstream from the QCMDEXC. I know the error has been trapped and dealt with at the QCMDEXC level but does anyone know a way to get that text other than the job log from MI ?

RPG pgm A => MI PGM B (monitor all errors) => QCMDEXC(call RPG PGM A).

MI PGM B needs error text "trying to call pgm A recursively..." from the failed call. I end up with blanks for the error message.

Another elegant solution for the same issue would be to not have QCMDEXC throw the error but pass it back for handling to the MI program, which of course solves two problems at once.
