      Does everyone that customizes Lawson programs use the LID editor? I am wondering if there is a better editor out there. The little box that can't be maximized makes it very difficult. I am new to Lawson and have just begun customizing with LID. Thanks for any suggestions.

        You can use any editors outside of LID. You can even use the simple NOTEPAD but the real problem is a lot of this editors have no syntax checking. I use the AS400 to create my cobol source because of it's syntax checking capabilities. I don't know if there are robust editors that you can download for free.

          Lynne,

          Try changing the font size - that helps a lot.

            Welcome to the world of Lawson!

            I use LID as little as I possibly can, and I never use it for editing code.

            I typically use PSPad Freeware Editor (http://www.pspad.com/en/) which has COBOL syntax highlighting and other nice features.

            We use WinSQL as our SFTP client, and it can be configured to edit documents with external editors.  I set up my WinSQL so when I double-click to edit a file on the server, it opens in PSPad for editing and it saves back to the server location.

            FYI - I use PuTTY for almost everything else at the command-line.  Really anything except tasks that spawn a new window (like pgmdef, jobsched, etc).

            Good luck in your Lawson adventures...
