Hi,

Theres a field which is used in IMS DC online screen. I do not want the field and the data (which is being entered automatically by a Java tool--its similar like an user enters data manually on a screen) to be VISIBLE. Everything (whatever data entered onto the screen for the field will be processed by the Rule and do necessary actions ex. Inserting into db etc) will be same except that the field and the data entered by the tool must not be Visible. Can I know is it possible to make a field INVISIBLE in IMS DC. If yes, Can I know how can I do that?

Thanks in Advance.

In the MFS, I had manipulated in the below way for the required field to be invisible.

DA020 DFLD POS=(020,008),LTH=0070,ATTR=(MOD)

to

DA020 DFLD POS=(020,008),LTH=0070,ATTR=(MOD,NODISP)

I didnt touch the below statements in MFS which are related to the required field.
MFLD DA020,LTH=0072,ATTR=YES
MFLD DA020,LTH=0070,ATTR=NO,FILL=C'.'

Is the above changes correct?

Have you recompiled your MFS and tested yet?

Yes, Sandy. I had recompiled MFS. As I need to wait for IMS to refresh, I can only test tomorrow. I will test it and will know the results.

I guess they don't "flip" the MFS libraries during the day? You don't need a full IMS refresh.

Hi Sandy,

Sorry for late reply.

By making the above changes, the field is invisible now. :-)

Thanks for the help.
