Hi,

There are few assembler screens where the user will those screens to get the address of a customer.. after getting the address of a customer uses function keys in the CICS region to populate the address extracted by using assembler screens...

Here i would like to know is where the settings have been done to pass the data from the assembler code/region to cics region (i.e which CICS region )

Please any one can help me in this.........

Regards
jai

I am not sure I understand your problem correctly. Does "assembler screens" mean CICS screens that are used for send & receive written in assembler?
Is your assembler-CICS source in macro level or command level?
Also, I don't get the second part of your post - is your question that "how are the inquiries routed to a particular CICS region" ?

Thanks Bharani for responding..

Here the scenerio..

I use the user interactive SCREENS developed in the assmebler. using that screens users tries to get the information of the customer.

After getting the customer information, user will populate the data in the other CICS region from the assembler region. Here iam trying to now is how the connectivity is done in the assembler region so that information is passed from one assembler region to another cics region. Information is populated in the CICS region when user presses function key i.e by reading queue....

please let me know ur thoughts......

regards
jai

From what I understand, I am surmising that your assembler source is coded at macro level and is designed to communicate with CICS either by sending stream of bytes or via CICS maps.
Macro level assembler contains DFH macros to communicate with CICS, will use the DFH variables (like DFHTIOA - terminal IO area) and is becoming obsolete fast. All macros can be converted to equivalent command level commands (CICS commands).

I am making the base assumption that the SCREEN you are talking about is a CICS screen. I may be wrong in this guess, and in that case, sorry the above information is not of much help to you. I do not know of a SCREEN designed in assembler that is not displayed in CICS.
