You need to send your message to the job's external message queue.

Try the following example:

SndPgmMsg MsgID(CPF9898) MsgDta('This is a test') ToPgmQ(*EXT)
MsgType(*STATUS)

If you would like to clear the status line, do the following:

SndPgmMsg MsgID(CPI9801) ToPgmQ(*EXT) MsgType(*STATUS)


Good luck.

John Taylor
