Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It looks like you want to define a COBOL program to CICS using the standard CICS CEDA transaction.

How you logon to CICS depends on your organisation. If you have a TN3270 session with z/OS (using an emulator like PCOM), then you’d normally have some kind of ‘hello’ screen. This screen may tell you how to logon to CICS, or you’d use the command

<pre>LOGON APPLID(cicsappl)</pre>

Where cicsappl the <i>applid </i>of the CICS region.

However, you’ll need to ask your CICS systems programmer what the CICS applid is (you could have lots of different CICS regions running at the same time).

A couple of other points:
<ul>
<li>This command will define the program to CICS. However you need the command
CEDA I G(GRP1) before you can use this in CICS</li><li>
After doing this, if you COLD start your CICS region. The definition goes. You’ll need to add this group to a list (if you haven’t already done so)</li><li>Some CICS regions also have a ‘hello’ screen. You’ll need to hit the CLEAR button before using the CEDA transaction</ul>

Hope this helps.</li>

    It's a 3270 terminal session, from an emulator it sounds like in your situation.
