Hi ... Can i use scrollable cursor in pseudo conversational programming. As far as i know in this type of programming we issued exec cics return and will lost the cursor position. How can i maintain the cursor position? I already try with hold option but it doesn't work. icon_cry.gif

For your info, i'm using cobol, cics, db2 and bms.


Thanks in advanced

Before returning the program just move EIBCPOSN to commarea and then receive this value on your new transaction.

To my knowledge, there is no way to maintain a DB cursor across CICS transaction invocations.
A way to do this would be to retrieve all the data and place in CICS TS queue. (If not TOO Large!). Then keep a pointer to the data last retrieved location is application COMM AREA. Just be very carefull to make sure you DELETE all the data when the application is done or you will cripple CICS.
