I have a scenario where in the MFS when the user presses tab key from one of the input field, the cursor movement should be pointed to another input field that is present 2 line below it.

What attribute should be set to the first input field in order to move the cursor to the required second output field???

Hi Sandy,

I have searched the forum. But could not find a solution. And i want to make clear that, the next focus is not going to happen dynamically.

Have to make the flow of focus control in the MFS itself. Is that possible??

Will you please post the first part of your MFS - then the fields - both MID/MOD and DIF/DOF then the COBOL fields from both your input and output messages and any related moves.

Ganesh,
If the second field has NOPROT attribute on device, then a tab from first field would default to next unprotected field ie second field here
