I'm not familiar with the term "prompt procedure." What does it do?

Is this a routine called when a user hits F4=Prompt? So all the screens that have F4=Prompt in all your application will call a procedure in the same service program (no matter what the underlying business logic or technical purpose may be?)

If so, I'd say that's a very strange way to divide up your work.

Would any advise for or against putting any new prompt procedures in the
same service program? Just curious. I started a new service program with
the intent to put any new prompt programs in this service program. But
then I got to thinking maybe that would be a bad idea because as the size
of the service program grew, so would the amount of memory each time the
program was activated. I am using a named activation group.

Anyway, am I off on trying to create just one service program for
any prompt-able field?
