You can't as far as I know.  It seems that what you are asking is 
impossible from my perspective.  My reply was based on the assumption that 
we know what program is being called and the parameters that are being 
passed.  An ATTN key program is the only way I know of to add functionality 
to an application without changing the code of the native program  (clear 
as mud?)

If I start writing an ATTN key program(say PGM1), how is that I access the
values in the application/existing programs from PGM1??
