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.
