Hi,

I am kinda new to CICS. I have an existing map which was designed using SDF II. Now one of the filed is an array. I had to change the length of that field. with little fight with SF II, i have done the changes.

Now the real problem. When I test the map, the array is populated with values from VSAM file. After I change one of occurrence and press enter I notice the map field have value for only the occurence I have changed.

All other occurrence is empty. ( those not touched)

Is there anything I am missing ?

thanks,
Sena.

Since you are kinda new to CICS, you might want to read the manuals. You have an attribute set which only allows those fields changed by the user to be retransmitted to CICS (your program). Depending on which attributes your program sets and whether you are using extended attributes, different behavior will occur. You need to look at the manual and see what you have defined and if you do not like the behavior of your map, change the attributes. you might want to compare your new map to the old one. That might provide you a hint on what you changed - that is if the behavior of the old map was what you wanted.

Thanks a lot for your replies. But existing map is SDF II map. I am afraid wont be able to make out a lot from it.

I know it generates BMS, I shall give another try and come back here.

Thanks for your replies. icon_smile.gif

change your program, before display (send) map, move FSET attribute
to fieldA on the fields you want returned This will override whatever your SDFII settings are.
