Hmmm...never thought about that...

What kind of overhead would be created using this technique rather then a
trigger program?

Is it easy to get the information from the journals to display to the users?
That is a function that will performed what could be on a daily basis.

Storage considerations?

Thanks again.

I was wondering if this could be done a different way so that as I
add more files to this logging process, all I would have to do is
change a file name or something. I was thinking it would have
something to do with pointer logic, but not sure where to start.

Another perspective, rather than a reply to the RPG question, so
probably best just to ignore if not useful input for the situation.

Why not use journaling for logging? Use STRJRNPF for the additional
files that are added to the list of files to have logging. If all files
created in the library should be journaled, then create the QDFTJRN
*DTAARA object in that library.
