I think you'll need CRTRPGPGM OPTION(*SRCDBG or *LSTDBG). If that's not enough, there may also be an RDP equivalent to STRDBG's OPMSRC(*YES).

In RDP, I get the message "Cannot set service entry point on non-ILE program MYPGM"... so that's out. /sigh

But yes, *LSTDBG will get me what I need for STRDBG at least.

I wonder if I wrapped it in an RPGILE program if it would work...

Anyway, thanks for the input.

When I'm faced with the dilemma you describe(I maintain II and III) I bite the bullet and CVTRPGSRC.

I like nothing more than to replace RPGIII with RPGIV /free, but this is a vendor's program...
