Introduction:

Unless modified at your site, after logging on to TPX the user is presented with the primary TPX menu, TEN0041:

Pressing PF11 (usually thought of as scroll right), the user is presented with TEN0010:

Question:

Is is possible to move some fields from TEN0010 to TEN0041 and others from TEN0041 to TEN0010?

Answer:

YES, you can move fields between panels TEN0041 and TEN0010 by modifying the panels.

More often than not, moving fields between panels would not be feasible. However, it is possible in this case because both screens are using fields from the UENTRY control block which is the control block for the particular user session.

If you look at Appendix B of the Batch Administration Guide, there is a list of "User Variables (by Variable Name)" and "User Session Variables (by Variable Name)". Any of these which begin with either UIDX or UENT could be used on these panels.

NOTE: Please ensure that you keep any modified panels in a separate library and concatenate this ahead of the delivered panel libraries (CB0VPxxx). It is strongly recommended that customer modifications are always kept separate from the delivered product libraries. For example:

 //PANELS    DD DSN=TPX.CUSTOM.PANELS,DISP=SHR << Customer modified panel library 
 //          DD DSN=&TPREFIX..CB0VPENU,DISP=SHR << CA delivered panel library
 //          DD DSN=&TPREFIX..CB0VPENP,DISP=SHR << CA delivered panel library
