Map generation options

Postby rohitumarjikar » Thu Oct 07, 2010 9:21 am

Hi,

We use TYPE= MAP or $SYSPARM or DSECT in the DFHMSD macro.
Can any one please tell me what is the practicall use of having threee options.
Generally we go for $SYSPARM as it created physical as well as Symbolic map but what abot the rest two??

Thank,
Rohit

Look it up - but this is what I recall from looking it up yesterday...
DFHMSD has 3 run types - the two define the type of map and the third defines the end of the map. &SYSPARM is a symbolic taking the parameter passed in to decide which type of map to create - dsect or map.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

if u use type= &sysparm it will create physical as well as symbolic map also
but type=dsect will create sybolic map only
same way type=map will create only physical map only

&SYSPARM will NOT create both - it is a variable that takes ONE of the options DSECT, MAP or FINAL

balajimikkilineni, you need to explain what you mean as what you said does not make sense. Maps are defined by coding field definitions which must be compiled into load modules (and copy books) -- this coding cannot be avoided when working with a map. If you're talking about automatically generating a program to send a map, receive it back, and process the data on it -- how would the program know what fields are defined on the map, and what editing should be done to the fields, and what to do with the data once it has been validated?

I suspect he means he wants a screen generator where you paint your screen, press a button and the maps are created.

vijayendra,
Please read the forum rules. They are much the same as elsewhere including starting a new topic when you have a new question/problem - do not hijack someone else's thread.

Suggest you also read the manual to find out what a EIBRESP of 16 means then try and fix the problem. If you have a problem understanding the documentation or fixing your code then come back and ask.
