Modifying Messages
The system has two kinds of messages:
Validation messages stored in the data dictionary. These display when the contents of the field do not match its specifications.
Program messages stored in the database. These display in all other cases.
Numbered Progress error messages sometimes display when a Progress instruction fails. Most of these messages are handled by the system, and a program error message is substituted, so this should occur rarely.
You can modify messages in Message Maintenance (36.4.7). One reason for changing messages is multiple language requirements. If a message seems unclear to some end users, an administrator can clarify its meaning.

Message Maintenance (36.4.7)
Changing messages can create the same version control problems that occur when menus are changed. Be careful to use message numbers not likely to be used in a later version.
