Resequencing columns on the WRKACTJOB screen

If you've ever had a hard time finding the job referred to by error messages popping up in your QSYSOPR message queue, here's a tip that will reduce your search time. Instead of using the WRKACTJOB (Work with Active Jobs) command and scrolling through all the screens looking for a job with an MSGW (Message Waiting) status, wouldn't it be nice if you could sort the jobs by the Status Column?

Just put your cursor on the column heading and press F16. This will re-sequence the status column alphabetically, making it much easier to find MSGW-status messages. You can actually use this handy feature on any of the columns. See IBM's Help text on the F16 function for more details.
