Peter (and Steve),

I can see that you are using a very rudimentary form of recording and playback 
of scripts for testing.

May I take this opportunity to suggest that if you are interested in using 
automated testing for AS/400's, and browser and GUI
applications, you visit our website to investigate how you can not only 
automate the recording and playback, you can also automate
the verification of the test results.

TestBench will also assist unit and system testing including tracking of data 
queues and parameters that are passed, as well as
showing the database updates.

Yes, the VBA scripting language used by Reflections can interpret screens,
fill entry fields, and press keys (enter, field exit keys, and PF keys).

I have written scripts to automate repetitive programming tasks (like making
all comments in a program white or deleting all spool files for a set of
jobs chosen from the WrkSbmJob list) and for testing.
