In a previous life I was a SysAdmin who came behind one or more persons
that used the MONMSG CPF0000 as a global Ignore All Errors. It works
wonderful, too good if that is all you do. To use this globally it
should goto an error routine that handles the error. They didn't, and at
times it was only when a user called saying the data wasn't there or
wrong did I know I had a problem. SW upgrades were fun since programs
appeared to run correctly.

The Long and Short of it all, it will work be very very careful...
