Problem with highlighting a COBOL , JCL Program

Postby vinni123 » Fri Nov 16, 2012 3:49 pm

HI all I am a COBOL developer, and I've got a new terminal (QWS3270) yesterday. I have a problem: I cannot highlight a COBOL program or JCL in the TSO. I type command "HICOBOL" OR HI JCL , in the command line, but instead of getting the next screen with highlight options, I am getting the error message "Invalid terminal" in the upper right corner. If I press PF1 (Help) key then, I have further explanation which says: "Enhanced coloring is not available on this terminal because the terminal does not support extended highlighting." Can you suggest anything to fix this? ALSO i have tried to use HILITE command but its showing the same error message above . Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Have you contacted Jolly Giant for support?

So what kind of terminal do you see in ISPF option 0? Including this info would have been the first thing to do...

If your terminal emulator is not using extended Telnet then highlighting wouldn't be available since it relies upon extended Telnet attributes. This is not a mainframe issue. It is an issue with the setup and configuration of your terminal emulation software.
