| Subject: What the heck is this AS/400 thing??
|
|
| Hi all,
|
| I'm new to the AS/400 and I'm finding myself completely lost most of the
| time. Usually, I can find my job (WRKSBMJOB) and such, but as far as
| _understanding_ these machines.... I'm completely clueless. For example,
| I've had friends ask me why someone would use an AS/400 over a PC. I can
| generally get away with muttering something about multiple users and batch
| jobs. But, really, I'm just echoing bits and pieces I hear and
| have no true
| idea of what I'm talking about. It's driving me nuts!! I hate feeling this
| lost! I know how to use our software, but I feel like I'm on a PC and the
| only thing I know how to do is use Word. I know there's so more
| out there. I
| just can't figure out how to do it.
|
| So, I thought I could get a book that would explain all this to me. I've
| searched Amazon and found a couple that look interesting but I'd love to
| hear what ya'll recommend.

| Using the AS/400: An introduction
| by Patrice Gapen and Catherine Stoughton

| Mastering the AS/400: A Practical Hands on Guide, 3rd Edition

| Thanks,
| Willow
