Can you clearly tell your problem.
SPA is area from where u get/put data while working with IMS DC.
If you are using SPA , ur first GU should be for SPA, & first ISRT should be for SPA, the next GU/ISRT should be actual segment.
what you were trying with SPA

this is in working-storage section

01 SPA-IO-AREA.
05 SPA-LL PIC S9(4) COMP.
05 SPA-ZZ PIC S9(4) COMP.
05 SPA-CI PIC S9(4) COMP.
05 SPA-TRAN-CODE PIC X(08).
05 SPA-USER-DATA PIC X(40).

in procedure division
CALL 'CBLTDLI' USING DLI-GU
IO-PCB-MASK
SPA-IO-AREA.

first i issued a GU call fro scratch pad area and then GN call for getting message from screen, but i am getting the screen messages in SPA-IO-AREA in first call itself. and same thin happens while inserting into the screen, the messages i like to store in scratch pad area are displaying in screen

what should i do to solve this problem.
