Hello and welcome to the forum,

Please do not post a question multiple times. . . All this does is introduce clutter.

When someone sees a question that they can answer, they will - sometimes this takes a while. We seem to have lost most of our IMS "answerers" icon_sad.gif

The duplicate topic has been deleted.

There are the usual recourses, like talking to your colleagues, finding the source of a program that already does it, consulting a manual, using google etc. From your CICS you'll know it is not difficult once you know how, so try out some research yourself until someone who knows can get to the question. You never know what other little gems you'll pick up along the way.

Sorry Tim, I don't.

However, just did a google, picked up a site called SCRIBD, has this line in screen on google "EATTR This attribute is used to define the color of the field". Then I'd google for EATTR, if I were you.

We have made several suggestions, including people/programs at your site. Have you exhausted everything?

I'm currently on a "dongle" at some cost I don't like, and I'm googling but not going to download anything. I can see stuff I think is useful to you, just with EATTR IMS DC. You may even know better stuff to poke into google.

The link Peter provided looks extremely useful.

I'm off my dongle now (don't often get a chance to say that), but until you exhaust all posibilities and explain why you still have problem, I'm out.

After looking at all the info (not much help) I can not get the field to change color. It would help id I could see the map changes needed, and the coding in ths IMS application program of what to move to the map attr field (dhm02-pal-at). icon_neutral.gif
