Thanks Scott

Excellent point. Just a convenient way to group things together, I guess.
Have all the PR's and PI's in 1 place. There are lots of "related"
functions in the srvpgm. If some of them are big or may often require
updates that would not include parameter changes, I just separate them
out. For me it makes maintenance easier.

Certainly open to suggestions.

Hi Jim,

I'm not sure that I understand your scenario. Your caller calls a
*SRVPGM, and the *SRVPGM doesn't do anything except call a *PGM? (Is
that right?)

Why not call the *PGM directly?

Possibly getting off track a bit but - I sometimes use the service
as a "container" to call the actual program I want to use especially if
that program is large. Seems to keep the service program small and let
recompile the the "called" programs individually. Are there gotcha's,
other than possible performance, in this I should know about?
