Check the given map-field length (a binary-halfword) for greater than zero.

To check whether a user has used the Erase-EOF key against a given map-field, check the attribute-byte (a/k/a the MDT) for a value of DFHBMEOF (X'80'). This is defined to copybook DFHBMSCA, along with many other values, in your site-defined SDFHMAC library.

Mr. Bill

Thanks Mr.Global Moderator(enrico).
I know the common things in cics to not to post in the forum, but FORUM itself suggest that to share different views and different answers,we can get much answers in many ways.if we read the manuals we can get some points, if we post in forum we get more points(it may be basic or extraordinay question).FORUM is the right way to get answers in a short span of time, NOT TO DOMINATE WITH ANSWERS.Please dont answer in a dominating way...........

I KNOW THE WORD MANNUAL AND VERB READ.

You might know the word but not how to make use of those concepts

look at my signature and use Your reading skills to understand what it really means

spoiled kid excuse...
forum help is to solve issues that somebody overlooked, not to give replies that could be easily found in the manuals
search prevented only by incompetence laziness and unwillingness to do a bit of home work Yourself

if You want help show that You deserve to be help icon_evil.gif

You ask how You feel like... I answer how I feel like ...
get psychological assistance if You feel dominated icon_cool.gif

another point ...
if You had cared to search the forums for CICS MDT CHECK and similar wording
You would not have had the need to post

then RTFM!

had you used 10 percent of the time
you spent providing the drivel you consider a sophisticated answer to being bluntly called lazy
you could have read the manual and learned that there are not that many points to this subject.

Hi Anuj!
moderators are human too icon_wink.gif

what pisses me off is that too many people here think that I behave that way because of status or I know/you do not approach
completely wrong ...

I call a spade a spade wherever and whenever I feel it necessary

Did you test this solution Peter? :-)

Maybe would have worked 40 years ago. Reminds me. The first editor I used (1979) was called SHAFT. Damn right :-)

For contemporary problems with sales of garden implements in Harlem, try Hoes. Special thanks to Kid 'n' Play for that one.

Yes, and we need people like you.

I usually say to my spouse - if I could keep my self in order - that's enough because in the end, I'll be sure that at least one rascal is less in this world and know, she usually agrees! icon_biggrin.gif
