I'm not trying to be a wise guy, but... 

you do put the cursor on the error message and hit F1 don't you?  And
display the job log and put the cursor on the messages and hit F1 again?  In
fact, everywhere you have a question, you hit F1 to see if there's more info
available right there?

Sorry if this answer is stupid, but I've forgotten to check the plug on the
toaster too many times.

Hi,

Yes, but, it's good to ask. I have met programmers that are unaware of this
simple function.

In some partial listings of error messages I have seen, they briefly explain
WHY a certain error message would occur. This is helpful when the only
Message description is "communications error" and the only helpful system
advice is "to fix problem, change program".


Thanks,
