Here's my situation.

We're connected to a mainframe system using the AS/400 which is
emulating a 3471 controller.  We do a passthrough session to log onto
the mainframe using 3270 sessions.  We do data entry into the remote
system, and redundant entry of the same info into our AS/400.  The
mainframe system is maintained by the state, and we have no access to
ad-hoc reporting with the data (nor directly to the files themselves). 
That's why we also maintain the same (and a bit more supplemental)
information locally.

What we want to do is eliminate the redundant entry by somehow
monitoring the passthrough session and populate our database from the
data gleaned.  

How should I approach this task?  What facilities on the 400 would I use
to accomplish it?  Is there a 3rd party product that could help me get
this done?

Thanks in advance for any info.
