Why not go to whoever gave you the term and ask that person what they meant?

When displaying a set of data for selection, a common CICS technique is to put one line of data per screen row and allowing the user to use PF7 / PF8 to move up and down through the data. The data may be records from a file or it may be rows from a data base. Depending upon the site standards, there are a number of ways this technicque can be implemented, some of which require reading the file (or accessing the database) for each screen of data; some other techniques don't -- usually the site dictates how to do this.

a) find out which 'scroll key' was pressed
b) build your next map with either next data or previous data depending on a)
c) send the updated map
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

ENTER:CLEAR PF3:RETURN PF1:INQUIRE PF7:PREV PAGE PF8:NEXT PAGE

ENTER CORP ID(MANDATORY) AND ACCT NUM

• Would be reading a file
• Perform two paging function PF7(Page up) and PF8(page down).

My rate is € 200 per hour, with a minimum contract of one 35-hour week. If you pay the required € 7,000, plus business-class travel expenses to your nick of the world, you can have a sample program.

If you have the map already, why do you have a problem with concepts? Furthermore, since each site has its own way of doing paging, you need to follow your site standards and not just grab something off a forum.
