Thanks to all who responded.  Besides the CPF0000 & MCH0000, isn't there a third
global message?  (_THAT_ was the main question of my original post.)   I'm
thinking CPA0000, or CPD0000???  Anybody know?  Or is it just CPF & MCH?

I guess I should have been a little more clear.  The global MONMSG actually did
have a GOTO to an error-processing tag, however, since this is a batch job that
only _I_ run, all I did with it was:

Global:       MONMSG     MSGID(CPF0000 MCH0000) EXEC(GOTO BadBoy)
     <<<< snipped code >>>>
              SNDMSG     MSG('Hey, pgm $DSPFD$M@C bombed with +
                           library ' *cat &library *cat ' with +
                           some message that was not monitored.') +


Since I'm the only one who uses this application, I don't need to get fancy with
the "standard error handling" stuff (although I realize I need to get up to
snuff on this).  I just need a message to tell me to go look at the job log.

Dan Riehl, thanks for the tutorial on the web site.  Good article!

Yes, it is foolproof but you'll have to do it for every CL program.  My
suggestion for you is to do this for all programs, including CLs and RPGs:


Remember to change *DFT to *BREAK when the operator is around to answer

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...
