Scan Message File (SCNMSGF)
Scan Message File (SCNMSGF) allows you to search any message file for a message identifier using any text
description from the message.
For example, if you search for the word "file", it will return all messages and their identifiers
containing that word!
I've always wondered why IBM didn't supply such a tool. It makes using message files a lot easier!
Please be sure to download the correct version for you operating system. IBM seems to have changed an API that
is used in SCNMSGF from V4R2 to V4R3.
SCNMSGF is free and does not require registration. Just another free tool happily provided by BVS/Tools.com!
This version of your tool [AFPTOOL] works wonders on our
invoices. Will save us thousands of dollars in labor from scanning a printed
invoice and then attaching it manually to emails to our customers. - Brooks
