I am trying to move programs from TEST TO PROD IN Natural development System, screenshot is attached.

The process I use is copy lines from test program using CTRL-C and then paste it to PROD using CTRL-V. I do this screen by screen. I have 50 programs to move to PROD.

Is there any easy way to move programs in 'Natural development System' ?

Most shops have personnel whose job is to move code from Test to Production.

Have you consulted anyone within your organisation regarding your dilemma?

The way you're doing it will be very time consuming and prone to error(s).

In a Natural Security environment (most are), you use the SYSMAIN utility to copy and move objects between libraries. SYSMAIN can be set-up to allow developers to maintain objects within libraries which they control, while disallowing maintenance in any other libraries, but this takes effort by the Natural Security Administrator, who probably is as lazy as I am. icon_biggrin.gif It's easier for him to secure all libraries and allow only a few administrators to copy/move objects. So you may not have access to SYSMAIN.

In a non-Natural Security environment, you can LOGON to another library while in the editor and then SAVE the new object. This option normally is disabled in Natural Security, but you may be able to convince the Natural Security Administrator to allow it for specific libraries - i.e. your target library. (Good luck with that.)

Also, there is a batch workaround, but most Natural Security Administrators would frown upon my discussing it. (You can find it on other forums.)
