We are presently on V5r4.
The reason why I say that is because *SHADE was also in the V5r4 manuals, but no matter what I tried, I could not get it to work.
I eventually called IBM, and once I was put into contact with the correct person (forget who) I was told that *SHADE in fact does NOT work.
Now unless it has been rectified in V6r1, you may have to use page segments as the location of these CAN be variable

Subject: DDS Box keyword with shade parm v6r1
I'm trying to confirm the doc DDS for Printer Files V6R1 page 33 is not an avail feature.
In the source editing it tells me the keyword invalid.
If I accept with errors, the compiler fails to gen the PRTF.
Page 34 has example
A R BOX4 BOX(1.2 0.5 5.1 6.3 0.2 (*SHADE 50))
I remember early in 6.1 someone mentioned this made the manual but was not implemented.
In truth I really need shading sometimes in a box, sometimes not in a box but behind a line of text (like alt row color in html). A page segment or overlay is kludgy because need same location control as a box. The area of the page this appears is variable in location & nbr lines.
