Include the Message File and library in the QUSEC (ERRC0100 or ERRC0200) when returning messages from APIs
Today, when the QUSEC struct is passed to an API, the MSGID and MSGDTA values are returned. However the Message File from which the message was retrieved/sent is not provided. This causes an issue with messages such as GUI0002 or SQLxxxx that do not exist in QCPFMSG message file. Perhaps a new ERRC0300 format option is needed that will include the message file from which the MSGID was sent.
We need this in order to log the message either to the joblog or another msgq of our choosing via the sndmsg interfaces. For example, I call QMHRTVM or QGYOLJOB or similar and it fails with GUI0002, it is not in QCPFMSG and hence I cannot turn around and log that message to the joblog in its "normal" format of 0 is not valid for length of receiver variable.
Instead I can only write something like "API QGYOLJOB returned GUI0002"
Please provide a way to retrieve the message file/library for the messages returned into this parameter/struct.
