Hi ,
This is basic doubt in DFHMDF on CICS.

I want to fill the input variable with constant values.

E.g in Field att i wnat to give INITIAL="*" and length =25

i want the full length to be like this

Using
Code:
INITIAL='****************************'
shouldn't be much an issue, surely?

Use the provided field. If you're asking if there's a different way to do the same, the only way I can think of would be (assuming a COBOL program) to name the field and
Code:
MOVE ALL '*' TO mapfieldnameO
You must specify the entire initial value desired on the DFHMDF INITIAL field.
