Introduction to AS400 menus

In this blog, we will discuss several menus available in the AS400 system which actually group similar commands and provide access to the system functions. All menus have names displayed on the top left corner of the menu screen. Also, every single menu has provided the command line where we can opt for any options.

We use the GO command followed by the menu name to access any specific menu.
