Hello All,

We had a requirement to make a CICS screen case sensitive and we used this in the program:

Code:
EXEC CICS SET
TERMINAL (EIBTRMID)
UCTRANST (DFHVALUE(NOUCTRAN))
END-EXEC


This has worked.

I was wondering if we can make a specific field of the map case sensitive and not all the fields. Can anyone suggest?

Thanks in advance!

can anyone answer these questions quickly ?
1) To receive the characters from the terminals as they are (ie "a" != "A") we need to use ---------- option

2) CICS Program A does a static CALL to Program B. Program does not have Local program entry in the region. What happens now?

3) A program Z can be invoked from multiple transactions that updates a CICS shared resource. There is high possibility that the program can run concurrently. How do you serialize the shared resource access in the program?

4) CICS Program X creates a TSQ in MAIN storage, before issuing a SYNCPOINT the program abends. What happens to the TSQ and is there a way to recover TSQ?

If you need a QUICK answer, you must, as always, read the manual, but I can give you some ideas:
1- You already know that you can tell CICS to do uppercasetranslation or not. You cant specify for for different fields. If you want a specific field translated to uppercase - use the intrinsic Fucdtion Uppercase(), to have it translated avter the CICS Receive Map.
2- A static call means that the called program is embedded in the same load-module as the calling program. Its only the load-module-name that is/will be known to CICS, depending on autoinstall or not. What happends is up to the called program.
3- If several tasks will update the same protected resource, CICS will handle the ENQ/DEQ for the resource, e.g. VSAM-file. You dont have to worry.
4- TSQs are not protected resources by default. In your case the TS-queue is unaltered. To make a TSQ a protected resource, you must make an entry in a TS Table. Be aware, a Syncpoint ALWAYS sets a Logical End Of tTask, and protected resources will NEVER be backed out. You must know very well what you are doing if you use Synpoint, and in most cases this is not necessery.

yes forums are to help people, when they ask properly,
not when they abuse of other people patience and time!

a moderator of a forum has the duty to clarify and try to correct
improper posting style ( urgency is frowned upon everywhere )

to make the most out of the questions You ask
it would be wise for You to read and meditate on
( as suggested novemtrigillion times )

The answers appear to be quite clear - and NOT too technical. . . Rather than dismiss the entire response as you did, you might have told us what was not clear to you. . .

Possibly, you are "in over your head" and some training would help.

It is OK to ask for hints, but not for entire solutions.
