Issues with CICS and Access 97



Issues with CICS and Access 97

Postby PuddinPie » Wed Sep 15, 2010 2:03 am

Hello all,

Ok, heres my situation. About 3 months ago IT came up and replaced a womans computer with a new one. We have a MACRO that run's in CICS on our mainframe and get's some information as per it's screen position and the dumps it into an access DB. Ever since the replacement of the computer, the macro will not run correctly. She can log into a different persons PC and get it to run without an issue but anybody logged into her PC can't run it. I have rebuilt the macro and reinstalled Access to no avail. The mainframe sessions are logged on a network so there not the issue either. It's obviously the way the computer was replaced. I was wondering if someone could tell me what the Macro could be running with (.NET, VB, etc.) that I chould check it's settings and try to reinstall it. It has to be something on the computer.
The error I'm getting is:
DAO.Field: No current record.
Line number 72.
Stopping Macro Playback.

Heres the macro.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

What actually causes a CICS transaction to be executed? Is the user already logged in?

Is there a 3270 terminal emulator in use? If yes, which one?

Just where was the macro "re-installed"?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Thank you for the fast response.
To access CICS they just open a terminal session and type in CICS and hit enter. Then they have to login and go from there.
I'm not sure what a 3270 terminal emulator is? Where would I be able to find that out?
By re-installing the macro I just ment deleting the original and copying over the original. Sorry, I should have been more specific.

Thank you.

Hello,

To access CICS they just open a terminal session
This is almost surely a 3270 terminal session.

A 3270 is the most common terminal type to log onto a mainframe. It is a hardware specification. As a metal and glass 3270 is quite rare today because of everyone already having a pc on their desk. There are many vendors that sell/lease 3270 emulator software.

By re-installing the macro I just ment deleting the original and copying over the original.
Yes, but where is this? On the user's local drive? SOme networked drive? etc. Once you determine on which hardware it is installed, it will be helpful to know which directory on that drive holds the macro. It is probably also worth a look to see what else is in that directory.

Can you verify that the new pc is running the exact same software that it replaced? If some product was upgraded, this may introduce the problem.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

The macro is copied from a network copy to the users local machine (Program files). It is put with the default macro's for the mainframe session in the folder called macro. (In this case called E!PC.) The PC upgrade was suppose to be same software because it comes from a distrubited image. That's one of the things that I was trying to figure out. Is there any software that, if not installed correctly, would cause issue with the mainframes session. i.e. If it was built of .Net or VB and .Net or VB needed to be upgraded or reinstalled.

Hello,

Is there any software that, if not installed correctly, would cause issue with the mainframes session.
There is always a chance that something was installed incorrectly. . . I would be more inclined to think that some product(s) got upgraded to a newer release/version that is not compatible. This happens quite often in the Windows environment. Several of my clients have not been able to upgrade to IE 7 because some of their purchased applications will only run in IE6 not IE7. . . There have been similar happenings with Sql Server DLLs but these appear to be history rather than current.

As this is most likely a desktop/network issue, suggest you work with your desktop and network support people to identify what is different between an "old" system that works and this "new" one that does not.
Hope this helps,

my guess, based on the errormsg/error line : users_table is empty.
- is full_ident correctly filled in on this new PC ?

    access_db = "D:\cap_summary\cap_summary.mdb"
    Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Set WshEnv = WshShell.Environment("PROCESS")
    full_ident = WshEnv("USERNAME")
    set users_table = db.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM users WHERE user_id = '" & full_ident & "'", dbOpenSnapshot, dbDenyWrite)

I'm not sure what that is or where to check it. Is there a way of stepping through the macro to see right where it errors out?

Hello,

Possibly. This would depend on what is actually executing the macro. . .

If this macro is running via the terminal emulator, look at the information about how to work with macros in the emulator.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Re: Issues with CICS and Access 97

Things to check :
1) in d:\cap_summary there must be a file called cap_summary.mdb
if you upgraded MSoffice it is possible that it is now called cap_summary.accdb in that case your macro will fail. you'll need to change all references to that file in the macro.
2) in that Access-database there must be a table called users with a record for the userid that is logged on to the PC

If these aren't the problem.
come back with the version of MSExcel you've got. I'll try to show you how to debug in MSExcel.
I can explain it to you, but i can not understand it for you.
