I've got thisd call to QMHSNDPM (prototype as SNDPGMMSG) in an RPG program:

CLR  CALLP     SNDPGMMSG ('CPF9897':'QCPFMSG   *LIBL': C                 %EDITC(COUNTER:'1') + 'records updated.': C                 38:'*COMP':'*':1:MSGKEY:ERRORCODE)

(I've tried it with '*EXT':0 and '*':1)

and it sends the message to the joblog (either way), but not to the message line of the terminal.

With a stack offset of 1 (3rd last parameter), it's sending the message to the PEP procedure (Program Entry Procedure) of your program. If you look at the message details in the joblog, you'll see that the "To procedure" starts with _QRNP_PEP.

For ILE programs, you have to add account for the PEP procedure in the stack offset parameter if you want to get to the caller of the program.

This works for me:

C %EDITC(COUNTER:'1') + 'records updated.':
