Loyd:

You need a '&' ahead of the variable for it to work. Here a snippet from one
of my UIM Menus:

:LISTACT  OPTION=4                                          
          ENTER='CMD dltsplf file(&spfile.)'                
          ENTER='         job(&spjnbr./&spuser./&spjnam.)'  
          ENTER='         splnbr(&spfnbr.)'


I hope this helps.

                Subject:        Panel group menu

                When creating UIM menus, I define a variable zuser to
retrieve the current
                user name.
                :var name=zuser.

                In the action line of the menu item, I want to pass that
user name to the
                called program. I currently have

                :menui option=1
                help=nohelp
                action='CMD call pgm(psn9001) parm(zuser)'
                .Birthday list (PSN9001)

                However, this passes the actual literal "ZUSER" into the
program. Is there a
                way to pass the user name specified in ZUSER?

                Thanks,
                Loyd
