Hi,

I have a screen which is having 5 fields.
I need to provide help screen for each field when the user enters at the field. Is it possible. If so how?

Certainly it can be done. It will not involve popup windows such as a PC has, but there is a mainframe way to do this type of thing. Hint: when the enter key is hit, you can use EIBCPOSN to locate the cursor, which will tell you which field the cursor was on.

Hello

Like Mr. Sample mentioned, yes it could be done but which way you want it to be done. Two ways it could be done is by placing the cursor at the field and pressing PF1 (for help) in this case you will use the HANDLE AID PF1 (LABEL) and the EIBCPOSN or by entering a '?' on the field which will indicate HELP in this case you will compare for '?' at the EIBCPOSN.
