Reply with quote

Could anybody tell me how to put underscore for input fields in BMS map. I need to do this setup while defining the BMS Map.

I tried with UNDERSCORE in the DFHMDF macro but it was not working, I think I am missing something in my BMS map.

Could anybody guide me...

Is your code moving anything to the fields before sending the map? If so, that would wipe out any initial values you specify in the map.

I move LOW-VALUES to the mapfields before sending it to the CICS terminal. Is it wiping out the initial values.

Also is there any way to define underscore in the BMS Map itself, instead of coding underscores in the INITIAL attribute of DFHMDF macro.

Can we code HILIGHT=UNDERSCORE in DFHMDF macro

There is a link to manuals at the top of the page. The CICS Language Reference manual in Appendix A, chapter 9 talks about the BMS macros and what can be specified and how. I recommend you spend some time in this manual to answer your questions about coding up the mapset, map, and field definitions.

Are you moving LOW-VALUES to the output map or the individual fields in the map? IIRC, moving LOW-VALUES to the individual fields will override the INITIAL attribute -- but it's been a while since I've done a map so don't quote me on that.
