Hi,
I need to dark a cics field dynamically. Suppose i have a field F1(Protected field) and i have moved 'X'6C' and X'7C' to the F1A(attribute) field but the field is not masked. Could you please suggest a solution for this?

Thanks in Advance.

First, you shouldn't move the hex values. IBM supply attributes in DFHBMSCA tio be used for this. The X'6C' equates to DFHPROTN but I find no attribuite for X'7C'. DFHDARK is a X'4C'.

Thanks for the response garry. i can include the DFHBMSCA copyook and
move DFHDARK to the fieldA valriable right.
I defined the FIELD as protected in map defintion and after darkenning the field it should remain as protected. Could you please let me know will it work if i mentioned above

Hi,

Use DFHPROTN to protect and non-display the field.
