We've done the same thing.  In fact the last CISC box we have is just to run 
the 
ancient version of BISCOM that we have.  They wanted too much money for a RISC 
version 
and our hardware company gave us an E04.  We've just about finished our 
migration.  
You're right on the CL driven versus burying in the codes.  This was a trick 
for our 
AS/SET generated programs which will not let you open/close printer files 
within a 
program, (disk files are okay).

Subject:        Facsimile/400

Can anyone give me a couple pointers on a "correct" way to set up
Fax/400?  I'm currently replacing a Biscom/EDS fax solution, works good
just not Y2K compliant, we just upgraded a client to from a 510 to a 720
and ordered Facsimile/400 rather than hassle with the upgrade of the
Unix-based fax server pc.  This eliminates a "faxserver" pc and puts all
the stuff back in the AS400. (where it belongs)
Current implementation:
* an outq FAXQ which a program "scans" for spoolfiles and moves them to
the PC
* the printer file contains a FAXHEADER record which contains control
codes for fax#, etc
* Based on a "fax or report(f/r) _" prompt in the program a cl for the
"generate" subprogram either overrides to faxq or not and faxheader
record is written (or not) at each fax# change.

It looks like Fax400 is cl-driven, ie., you'd have to call a cl at EACH
"fax# change".

Any advice will be appreciated, ie., how did you do it??
