Is it possible to create BMS macros with cobol field names from the SDF environment for a CICS screen ? Trying to avoid using SDF.

If you have the time, you could write a "Screen Painter" in REXX. Design and paint the screen image on your Workstation, using special-characters to designate (for example) "UNPROT, NORM", 'ASKIP,BRT', etc. These characters would be known to your REXX exec when you build your DFHMDx Macro components. You'll also need start/stop characters for screen literal lengths.

I wrote one of these about 25 years ago in CLIST but I don't have it anymore. icon_sad.gif

But, once you've created this EXEC, screen painting will be much easier.

I haven't Google'd this, but try "CICS Screen Painter". Perhaps you'll find it as Freeware?

HTH....
