Integrating your IBM i with Windows allows you to provide complete and comprehensive solutions to your users. But there always seems to be a point where the user has to manually switch from the IBM i environment over to the Windows world, which may seem overly burdensome to the user. To assist with the transition from the green-screen to a Windows application, you can have the RPG program call the PC application, which makes the switch less involved for the user.

Over the last several months, I've received many notes from readers, including these:





  • I have some custom routines that need to run when a Daylight Saving Time change goes into effect. How can I have these programs run automatically?
  • There is one user profile that the system operator is always re-enabling.... Is there a way to automate this?
  • We have a program that periodically reads QHST files to see what files need to be reorganized...maintain record sequence...based on CPF4653.... Is there a way to avoid scanning QHST?
