Hi all,

I have requirement like am having 100 fields. I need to display the particular fields from the 100 based on customer requirement in a screen. for example if a customer select 20 fields then, i need to populate the selected field and i need to receive the value for corresponding selected field. so how can i proceed. whether we have any option to use in map/page. please advice.
Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Rather than one do-it-all screen, suggest you consider multiple screens and the user picks which of these better meets their need.

A web enabled apps have this capabilities of what you asked for and BMS would not be capable of doing that as exactly as you expect.

Please refer to below posts for more information

1) http://ibmmainframes.com/post-88454.html
2) http://ibmmainframes.com/about35248.html

However, still if this needs to be done then you can try suggesting the optimised way like,

1) Suggest you to make the combination of fields per MAP (call it as combination-1)
2) Create as many as you need as per the combinations required as per the application requirement or get that informations from the users and name those combinations(MAP) 2,3,4 and so on....
3) Now approach would be to send a screen which says about these combinations with numbers asking users to select a specific number to enter
4) Now Receive that number and then based on the number entered Send the corresponding MAP and carry on your further processing

Note: you may also look at below link for latest changes or capabilities which might be useful,
