I am a novice at CICS programming...I am a little confused. I need to create a screen to display only data pulled from the history file. Since the key will be passed from various other screens (depending on which screen they choose to view the new History screen from), do I need a SEND and RECEIVE Map or just a Send Map?
I have already modified various other programs to capture the changed data. What I need is a screen to display the history. Right now, the user enter a person's account number and have access to several screens, master data, fiscal data and a couple other screens just from that one entry. Being that this history screen is just displaying (no entry fields), do I need a Receive Map since there is nothing to receive entered from the screen? The account number will be passed in the Commarea.
The screen will display historical changes for whatever account they entered at the main screen. For audit purposes they had me to capture the changes which I have already done by modifiying other already exisiting programs. Now they want a screen to display those historical changes since my users can't view the VSAM file.
