That program also uses APIs so the QSYSOPR message queue isn't locked by
the job. It also marks the message as *OLD so that it will ignore the
message on the next cycle in the job. The source code is included so you
can modify it to suit your needs...

Daryl, have yet to find what I mentioned, but:
this link to Code400 has a program by Tom Holden where he provides
a link to a save file, look for #2 on the right side of the web page

Subject: Program to read QSYSOPR message queue
I need an example or some help creating a program to read the messages in
I have a program I wrote which uses RCVMSG, however, it only returns
messages that are COMPLETION messages. I cannot determine why it gets
these only. Help!.
RCVMSG MSGQ(&MSGQLIB/&MSGQ) MSGTYPE(*NEXT) MSGKEY(*TOP) WAIT(3)
KEYVAR(&MSGKEYVAR) MSG(&MSGLVL1) MSGLEN(&MSGLEN)
MSGID(&MSGID) SEV(&MSGSEV) RTNTYPE(&MSGRTNTYP)
It also does not start reading from the first message in the file. This
may be related to the above issue.
I would also like to get something like a RRN so that each time I read the
QUEUE, I can position the program at messages I have not processed.
