Is there a way to scan a BMS Physical MAPSET module to determine what actual BMS MAP screens are contained in the BMS MAPSET?

The BMS Symbolic MAPSET is not available, or is corrupted, and the BMS Physical MAPSET module was stored previously in the CICS LOADLIB for CICS to use during execution, and there is a need to know the names of the BMS MAP screens in the BMS Physical module.

I am looking for a CICS command for this, but could not find one. Otherwise, maybe a mainframe command, or utility that could scan the BMS Physical MAPSET module in the LOADLIB to determine the BMS MAP screen names contained in the module.

Thanks for the pointer to the part of the manuals that I could not find after several hours of searching. I always try reading first, but after a while it is best to seek expert help instead of wasting time with useless searching. Knowing when to ask for help is important, and hoping to get honest and constructive help is always what you hope for.

All the manuals are hard to search when you are looking for something and are not sure what it is called, or what subject it is under. In general, I find the manuals very hard to use and not always helpful at giving a good understanding of topics, and helping to resolve what should be simple problems.

The issue I have seen is that authors of these manuals assume the reader has a larger level of base knowledge than the average person, and should be able to extrapolate into the information without providing any simple explanations to help the reader.

This is an general industry issue where support specialists trying to help someone often cannot imagine that the person seeking help doesn't understand the answer they are giving. It takes a special support person to understand that they need to explain the answer in a way the listener can understand versus in a way they understand the answer. Doing this while not ridiculing, or embarrassing, or berating the listener makes for the best support person, and these people should be praised, promoted, and paid more than the ones that do, or cannot treat the listeners like valued customers, or clients.

We won't solve these larger issues here, but working together and helping whenever possible is always better than making judgements about the knowledge level of the person seeking assistance.

Thanks.
