Kilgore Hi James I did something similar for our Ops department to run the backups. We have our production data mirrored to the development box, where the backups are done, but routines need to be run on both boxes to synchronise the halt of the replication process while the backups are going. I ended up with everything done from the dev box, using data queue entries sent from both local and remote processes back to the monitor routine. The CL program has that same data queue attached to the display file, so it can run in auto refresh mode, displaying the messages as they appear in a rolling subfile. The whole thing seems to work well, so I think your idea above is a good 'un. The code for the above, if anyone's interested, is at http://www.dbg400.net/samples at the end of the Usenet section.
