Dynamic Number Generation

Postby jaggz » Tue May 15, 2012 10:21 am

Dear Forum Users,

I have designed a screen where a student details are entered and in turn the CICS system has to generate a unique number dynamically. Unfortunately we are not on Coupling facility to use Named Counter Server but is there another possibility of assigning a unique number to any records entered ?

Many organizations maintain a "next available" number and increment this each time a new number is needed.

The "CICS System" does not do anything - the application code does this.
Hope this helps,
