Setting up an automatic reply in the system reply list

AS/400 systems can use the system reply list to automatically reply, but only if the inquiry message reply attribute is specified as INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL).

How do I set up an automatic reply for a program that is waiting on a response from the user who started the job?...

We would like to automatate a job that requires the user to answer a message of "nomax" during the program.

I have set up a new entry in the system reply list but my entry does not work.
using wrkrpyle I have entered
Seq # 1060
Mess ID CPA4072
Compar data *none
Msg deta start position *same
msg reply 'nomax'
dump sending job *no
coded character set *same

Any help is GREATLY appreciated. I am a new AS400 System Admin with less than 1 year experience.

The system reply list is used only when an inquiry message is sent by a job that has the inquiry message reply attribute specified as INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL).

You can change this in a active job with the command CHGJOB INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL)

You can change this in the job description for the job: CHGJOBD INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL)

Or you can change this when you submit the job: SBMJOB INQMSGRPY(*SYSRPYL)
