3/6/09 How to change System Request options

Although what is displayed on the System Request menu screen isn't easy to change, it easy to change what the options shown on that screen actually do.

The commands executed by the system request menu are stored in a message called CPX2313, which is located in QSYS/QCPFMSG. Keep in mind that the commands are not exactly in order, so you have to be careful with making changes to this message file.

Use the command DSPMSGD CPX2313 and you will see see how easy it is to change, for instance, DSPJOB to WRKJOB.

Caution: Whenever you make changes to CPX2313 it is important to remember the change is a global one and should not be used lightly!
