    If you can give a business reason for using a MAM console on an AS/400 (I'm curious) and show your current attempt a starting a script, I might take time to set one up for testing. -- Tom

    I'm working on MAM console in my company. I can use a macro script as a record format but problem is too heavy... I want to know, how check that in first line on MAM console is the same text like in *.txt file. If the text is the same - delete it from console, refresh and check another one.

    I’m working on MAM console in my company.   Yes, but why? What is it used for? Why not use other access methods that are more common? What does it do that isn't better in other methods?   Tom

    I can’t install any software on my PC.   f you can't install software on your PC, then you can't install MAM console.   But you still haven't described what you will use it for. I don't know how to set up without knowing how it should be used.   Tom

    MAM console is installed already. I can't install other applications on my PC. And i have access to more than 50 client's systems. Discarding alerts should improve monitoring systems... Sorry, but i don't know what you want to read more... I can't show you how my MAM console looks like. But i can find similar screen on google to describe every steps if you want

    So far, I can't see any useful way to have a MAM console work with an AS/400. It seems to be intended to connect to a games server, not an AS/400, though I can see how it could be adapted. I can't, however, see any reason for it since PuTTy would be a much better choice for most uses.   Since installation and configuration instructions are written in German, parts aren't totally clear. But it does seem that install instructions are for a Windows server and not an AS/400.   Where are install instructions found for AS/400s?   Tom

    This is the only MAM console that I am aware of. If you have a different one, please explain what it is. -- Tom

    Now, I understand :) THAT's my MAM console. This is the screen of client's system after log in.

    Well, that does clear it up a little. (Why call it a "MAM console"?)   But now it's not clear what you want to be deleted. What will be displayed when deletions are done? Where are you expecting a 'script' to execute?   Such a script could only run on the workstation. And it couldn't 'delete' anything from the screen, though it could potentially send workstation keystrokes and delete typed characters or characters in an input/output field.   What kinds of things are you expecting to 'delete'?   Tom

    I tried adding a new comment a couple times, but they're not showing up. It's not clear why some comments get held and have to wait to be released. -- Tom

    Well, it looks like that. (yes, i know that is not a MAM console, but i can't show my own) First column and second one are most important. The script should check first row, put a mark on field in first column only if in second column find a word from external *.txt file. After that, should start check second row and like that, and like that...

    What you seem to be referring to as a MAM console looks to be a System i Access session. The WIN5250 Client looks to be similar but not being familiar with the product I can't say if the functionality is equivalent. Am I correct in assuming you're looking for a way to delete the items listed on the WIN5250 Client picture?

    Now that we've established that it isn't a "MAM console" (and I still don't see why you called it that), we're close to understanding what you want. But why can't you show us your own console?   That makes it sound like it's completely different from what you are showing us. And that makes it impossible to know how to create any kind of script. (A better name might be "macro" instead of "script".)   Is the "console" an iSeries Access emulator session? Or is it something else? Without knowing what it is, no scripting advice is possible. Each kind of device will a different method of scripting.   Tom
