How to you protect selected records from update when invoking Qedit?


  1. Put "R" in QED-UPDATE-SW (for reply mode).
  2. Set QED-VLENG to 1 less than the queue length.
  3. Put an "R" in the last position of each record you wish to protect from update. Since the view-length (as per #2) is 1 less than the LRECL, the user will never see the R's in the last record position.
