These are a great help: H options(*srcstmt:*nodebugio) Causes the debugger to use the source line numbers and to skip over the field I/O when using Strdbg. H dftactgrp(*no) actgrp(*caller) The program will run in the same activation group as whatever called it -- instantly fixes the problems with overridden DBF's & PRTF's that devil new RPG IV'ers.
