Do you know if there is a way to make the cursor skip over a field but NOT protect the field? From what I recall ASKIP protects the field and skips over it. Our users want to be able to enter data into the field but only in rare occassions. So they want the cursor to tab right past the field. Then, on the rare occasion that they want to enter something there, they can position their cursor on the field and enter data.

Thanks!

they will need to perform a manual TAB keystroke, if they don't
want to enter data.


I suppose you could initially define the field as ASKIP, then on rare
occassions, give them a PF or PA key to hit, that would then unprotect
the field and position cursor to it..

could we use dynamic cursor positioning for this??

so for rare occasions the cobol code will itself place the cursor into the asserted field??
