Reply with quote

Hi All,

Here is a problem i just came across

I have populated a junk data for a map variable in my online program. When the map is sent, here are the 2 scenarios

1. The map is hanged with "XPROG752" in the bottom of the terminal. - Simulator WRQ Reflection
2. The total map is screwd up in the online region - Simulator Powerterm

My inputs in this are

I have verified the maps and Online programs, there are absolutely no problems.

I guess it is some thing to do with the display properties of CICS...

Please provide ur valuable inputs on this...

Thanks,
Napoleon S

To have junk-free CICS maps, start with:
MOVE LOW-VALUES TO MAPO.
Then move the values you want to show and send the map.

Thanks for the your valuable comments...

But it has been already done..I have initialised all the map variables needed...

Let me explain my problem clearly...

1. Initialised all the MAPO variables.
2. Moved junk value from file to a single map variable.
3. Send the map.
4. The map is hanged with "X PROG752" in the bottom of the terminal. - Emulator WRQ Reflection
5. The total map is screwd up in the online region - Emulator Powerterm


Please don't ask me to clear off the junk data moved to the map...I want to know the exception behind this in CICS display properties so that it can be handled...

The most common problem for this is that the compiled map and the map
field defitions in the program do not match.

OK! so you know you have junk data, and you purposely try to display it!
As you have already noticed, the emulators respond differently to the same junk.
And as Powerterm is not hanging, you certainly also have noticed that the SEND MAP was successful (response=NORMAL).
This is because CICS is unaware of the junk data: from CICS point of view it may be binary data that you send to a virtual terminal.

I'm afraid that the only solution is to check the value before moving it to the map, but there is not even an easy way for that.

Somebody have suggestions?
