Hi,
I need to build a CICS map with more variables. So when i am creating for each field having length, attribute and data fields. So the size went around 2500....But as per our coding standard 1920 as base area for a map. So if the size beyond 1920 will throw storage violation..please correct if i am wrong...pls suggest any idea.

Thanks in advance.

From the CICS Application Programming Reference manual appendix on defiining maps:
Quote:
SIZE
specifies the size of a map.

line
is a value in the range 1-240, specifying the depth of a map as a number of lines.

column
is a value in the range 1-240, specifying the width of a map as a number of columns.

This operand is required in the following cases:

An associated DFHMDF macro with the POS operand is used.

The map is to be referred to in a SEND MAP command with the ACCUM option.

The map is to be used when referring to input data from other than a 3270 terminal in a RECEIVE MAP command.
Restricting a map to 1920 (24 x 80) bytes has LONG been out of date; many terminals these days are mod 4 (43 x 80) or 5 (27 x 132) depending upon the emulator.

However, the changes you need to make to use maps larger than 24 x 80 will depend upon how your site is set up, specifically, so you need to consult with your site support group for assistance.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your information. icon_smile.gif

Now i build the map with size more than 1920 and it working fine. I have a doubt, since existing map (like previous main screen) have only 1920 size and getmain also done with that size only. Now i am getting 2500 size via getmain for my new map.
Is there any possiblity of storage violation ? or do we need to change existing map getmain length..

Note: My screen is used for sub menu function. it wil throw After navigating into few screens only

What will it 'throw' - ball? Nothing in mainframe terminology is 'thrown' - it is displayed or issued.

in IT using the proper terminology is essential for effective communication
if You do not understand the concept You should look for a profession where there is no need for communication

And I just shared my knowledge that the term 'thrown' is not used in a mainframe z/OS environment.

Hello,

These are NOT silly things. Being so obstinate about using nonexistent terms IS silly. And extremely unprofessional.

If you want people to take you seriously, you will learn and use proper terminology. Possibly you can find a way to be paid for hanging about in some chat room where you can use chat-speak and "throw" whatever you want. . .

Don't know what an SME is but we are ALL learners here - just some people know more about some things (most things in some cases) than others. I am always learning and I have, from time to time, asked for help myself.
