Hello.

Please clarify the /FORMAT command

The IMS command /FORMAT <modname> is used

1) To display the formatted screen only?
2) To diaplay the formatted screen also to initiate the transaction?

Thanks.

Thank you.

Yes I did a search in net.

It says used to display the screen & this format used to key the data for next message.

In our shop if we issue /FOR <mod-name> , screen will be displayed.
But if we key the data & enter, one of the transaction started to executing.

Then whats the relation between "/FOR <mod-name>" and transaction?

Hello,

I found the valuable information.

/FOR <MOD-NAME> statement does following,

1) Display the associated screen on terminal
2) Corresponding MID,DIF & DOF are active
3) The first field (MFLD) of MID represents the transaction to be initiated, once user key the data the corresponding MPP starts executing to read the message from input queue

Thanks
