ROUTE call in CICS API

In the CICS API for Visual COBOL, the ROUTE call isn't supported.

Does Micro Focus have a recommended work around?

RE: ROUTE call in CICS API

Hi,

CICS ROUTE is not currently supported.

You can use the CICS Precompiler directive CICSECM FUNCTION option to control the behaviour. You can ignore unsupported CICS Syntax or to cause an abend at runtime.

If you want to print to multiple 3270 printer terminals then you could look to do something like:-

- Store Data to be printed in storage such as TSQ , File , SQL Database

- Use EXEC CICS START TERMID to start a transaction on the required terminals

- In the started transaction you could retrieve the data and SEND to the Terminal.

Regards

David
