Reply with quote

Hi,

I'm developing a program - COBOL/CICS and SCREEN (to be invoked from main menu) let say program name is PGM1 using SCREEN1. Do they need to be defined in PPT in order for PGM1 to be invoked successfully from the main menu?

Thanks,

Hi,

If your PGM1 is a new program and is not called by any of the existing program, then you need to make PPT entries.
e.g. PGM2 is calling a new module PGM1, and PGM2 is already registered in PPT, then you need not make any PPT entries for PGM1.
However, if it is an entirely new program, then you need to make entries.

I hope this is what you had asked.

Thanks,
Apeksha

If you're using EXEC CICS LINK or XCTL to PGM1, PGM1 will need a PPT entry. And SCREEN1 will need an entry as a mapset.

Screen1 will need entry as mapset, if screen1 is newly coded?

sprikitik,

you should contact your CICS Systems support group for assistance
with creating new programs and screens.
