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

Hi,

There aren’t really macros as such available on the AS/400. However, you may be able to record a macro in your client software. If you are using client access as a terminal emulator to connect ot the AS400 it has a macro function, RUMBA also has macros available. This will all depend on what you use to access your AS400.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    We use RUMBA here. Does that help?

    Hi, It's been a long time since I've used RUMBA, but I'm sure it had some sort of Macro function. It should be available from the pulldown menus. Maybe it's not called Macro, I'm not sure. But there must be some sort of record/playback option. Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    I don't know anything about macros. That is why I was asking. If I go to the tools menu my choices are: Run Macro, Record Macro, Edit Macro, or Macro properties.

    Hi, Try the following :- 1. Place your cursor where you would want your text to be filled in. 2. Select Record Macro with the mouse. 3. Type in the text that you want filled in by the macro. 4. Select stop recording (probably on the same menu as record macro). 5. Clear the text you just filled in. 6. Place your cursor where you want your text to be filled in. 7. Select Run Macro. You may have to give the macro a name in some of the steps above, but this hould give you the idea of how it works. Regards, Martin Gilbert.
