I want to provide Data to Macros from File. Is it possible in AS/400? I want to run same set screens (Combination of 50 Screens) with different inputs. I have created Macros. But I want to provide different inputs to Fields in Screen (from file or any other methods). Is it possible and how do we achieve this?

    if you are referring client access macros, then not really.  But, you could possibly simulate it by using a Word "mail merge" to insert different data sets into a "letter" that is the macro script text and save multiple new macros.

    I agree with BigKat. I don't believe it's possible. It seems like a very involved request. What is the practical purpose of wanting it to run for so many screens? Remember that any upgrade or update to the software may render the macros obsolete. If you could provide a little more detail and real world use , we may have another alternative.

    there are some automated testing software applications that will record your mouse and keyboard actions and replay them allowing you to specify the data to be replaced from a testing database.  They will let you do the same operation 100,000 times and can even capture returned screen values (like a generated order number created during order entry) for use later in the script, and they can detect when things are erroring (most of the time).  They are expensive and hard to setup,  but may be worth it if you really have to do 100,000 tests for some compliancy certification.

    In one of my project, i want to test the screen with different inputs. I need to feed min 1000 time to complete my test cases. I want to achieve automatically. So that same inputs will be used for both before and after images
