My CL program calls a GoAnywhere project. I want to use the output variable, but the CL variable is never updated. What am I missing?

GoAnywhere will not return a value to the calling CL program. In order to get a response from your project, you will have to either write the value out to a file, or place it into a data area and then read the file or data area in your CL program.

I had this same question and was glad to find this answer. But what if I use an RPG program and use the API call to execute the GoAnywhere project? Can a value be returned to the RPG program?

No... it does not return values in that instance.
