Oddly your message appears as a reply to mine, inside of a old
message thread.. and even that message thread was within another old

I think you will need to be much more explicit in what you want to
accomplish. But if one wants a program to be able to effect the same as
what Display/Alter/Dump can do to /alter/ storage... Well, you are
pretty much out of luck.

The LIC does not give access to the MI to generically manipulate any
storage like the menu interface to the D/A/D. That is a primary part of
ensuring integrity of the system. This is true irrespective of release
or security level. An MI program can only modify /spaces/ to which it
obtains an address. If an address to an /object/ is obtained, if the
object does not have a space, there is no access available to the object
except the supported methods. The supported methods are those MI
instructions that are provided to perform against the /object/ by its
[resolved] system pointer. There is no MI instruction that enables
addressing into the object itself, only into its space.

I just had a look at a special Address of my AS/400 and I am searching
a MI Programm to modify these Address like I can do with the SST-Menu.

Find By Object Address
Output device . . . . . . : Display
Type choice, press Enter.
Object address . . . 0000000000 000000 0000000000 000000-FFFFFFFFFF

Is there anybody out there who can send me a program body which I can
extend? The other question is I am running the Test AS/400 with V5R4
and security level 40 might this be a problem?
