It is so nice to "EVAL CoName = GetCoName(CoNumber)" so I would say it is
worth it.  Just create a full blow module to retrieve the data area or what
ever.  Put that module into your binding directory or add it to a service
program.  Yes it was worth it for me.  Now to teach other programmers here
how to use all this stuff and document it up the ying yang.

Subject: Procedures/Sub-Procedures

We are starting the next release of our software, which is all in ILE RPG.
Now, I want to start taking common functions out of programs, change them
into sub-procedures accessed via a service program(s). Put the service
programs in a common binding directory and away we go..

One common function that all of our programs do is to get the current
company that they are working with by accessing a data area. It's only a
couple of lines of code, but I thought it made sense to put it into a
sub-procedure. However, I can not define a data area in a sub-procedure
(this also makes sense). 

So, I would have to create a full blown procedure (I assume not accessed via
a service program). So, my question is, Is this still worth doing - given
that it's only a couple of line of code retrieving a data area?

Anybody have any comments?
