I am not aware of any way to implement horizontally scrolling messages in CICS. You might be able to emulate vertically scrolling messages in CICS by repeatedly clearing the screen and sending the data, adjusted to the new position. I have not tried this, however, and do not know what issues would arise.

However, scrolling messages generally imply a large interaction between the display unit and the CPU -- an interaction that does not exist in CICS since 3270 screens are static once sent until an attention key (enter, PF key, PA key, CLEAR, etc) is hit.

You would be far better off learning to understand the CICS interaction with the screen and not attempting to make it do things it was not designed to do.
