I don't think it's changed with recent releases of CICS; you have to code the validation yourself. What you have to do depends on YOUR requirements.
Do you want to validate numeric and/or AN fields.
Do you want to check for invalid chars in the field. E.g. 12A.23
Do you want to restrict/allow all format(s) the user enters. E.g. $123.23 or -123.23 or 123.23-
Do you want to restrict the poition of the data in the field.
E.g. >123.23bbbbbb< or >bb123.23bbbb< (the "b"s are blanks)
Do you want to limit the values entered. E.g. from 22 thru 2340 inclusive.
Well, you get the idea. You code for what's important to you. Some shops have have a canned routine to do this kind of thing.
