DFHBDMDAS

I am trying to find out of a field on CICS screen can be made blank / hidden / secured using field attribute, so that the data cannot be extracted using a macros.

I have seen a DFHBMDAS field, though not appearing on CICS screen, can still be extracted using Getstring () command in an excel macro.

I came across DFHPROTN attribute which protects field, makes it non-printable, non-display-able etc

Have we not seen this before - but maybe on another forum - and the answer still stands - No you cannot stop the data being extracted. The way to protect sensitive data in this case is to save the field contents, set the field to blank and redisplay the map.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
