I am writing a program to do some distribution tasks. One of the things I want to do is update userA's screen when userB pulls an item.  I was told I could use a data que to do this but I am not sure if this is correct, or know how to use a data que?  Anyone have any ideas?  And if data que is the way to go, where can I find out how to use them?

Yes, you can use a data queue.

In general, you use the QSNDDTAQ API to put data on a data queue, and QRCVDTAQ API to pull data off.  

You can also link a data queue to a display file.  This is probably the best place to start, since the author does a great job of taking you through the whole process and providing a working example program:


These links also provide information about the technique.
