Hi all,

Can any one help me in finding the program name associated with 5 digit transactions in CICS.

If we have to find it for 4 digit transaction then we use the below command

CEMT I TR(XXXX)

However, this is not working in case of 5 digit transaction code.

Thanks and Regards,
Syed

As far as I know, use the CEMT for the first four characters and then look at the program to see what it does with the extra character, what program does it route to based upon that character.

Thanks for the update.

There is not entry in PCT table with the first four characters, neither do we have an entry with last four characters.

What makes you think that the five characters are starting a transaction?
Have you tried to CEDF the terminal from another and then enter the five characters and see what happens?
There could be an exit that is routing the request to another region or changing the transid.

I tried it in CEDF mode.

All the five character transactions are calling driver modules. There are so many programs which are being called one after the other and finally the actual program is called.

One way of finding it is going in CEDF mode and get all the programs and check for the program which is doing the required action.

But this is tedious job. There should be some screen wher we can display the program name corresponding to the transaction.

as per manual ...
Quote:
TRANSACTION(name)
specifies the name of the transaction, or transaction identifier (TRANSID). The name can be up to four characters in length.

se the previous comment ,
CICS service transactions will display all the info as per CICS standards

not a cics/forum issue, complain to the application design group
it was their decision to adopt the character following the official (as defined by CICS standards) transaction code
as a routing/dispatch code to navigate thru the application program chain

the best source for the info is the application documentation

What was the first command that appeared on the CEDF screen when you hit enter on the CEDFed terminal?

Any chance that the terminal definition is what's driving the transaction? If so, the 5 characters you key on the screen are all taken as data and the initial program is determining what subsequent programs/tasks to execute.

Garry.

Yes. It is processing the characters as data. The driver modules are then deciding which program to call.

I will check the system to find the actual data base for this mapping.

Thank you all for your help.
