Thanks for offering the suggestions... I have never used an AS/400 IBM API, so that is probably part of my problem. :( Some of the places I looked today for info: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/v4r5/ic2924/index.htm?info/apis/sec 6.htm http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/v4r5/ic2924/index.htm?info/apis/qsy advle.htm http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/v4r5/ic2924/index.htm?info/apis/qsy avle.htm http://www.ibm.com/Search?v=11&lang=en&cc=us&q=validation+list+api&Search.x= 33&Search.y=11 It just seems like it is made more complex then it should be.

Where I was looking at the problem, we're looking to avoid the interactive HTTP *admin server and drive this via a program call, so click on "add a user" and run some underlying CGI that calls the API that adds the user/password. I thought that this was what you were after - having a program add entries to a validation list. I guess I was confused (and not for the first time!) Anyway, for the archives, the API's are QsyAddValidationLstEntry QsyVerifyValidationLstEntry QsyRemoveValidationLstEntry Documentation can be found at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/pubs/html/as400/v5r1/ic2924/info/apis/sec6.htm I apologise if I misunderstood the request. I do think these APIs will help deal with programmatic handling of validation list entries. --buck _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lemail@example.com Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
