Introduction:

We have customized panels TEN0041 and TEN0010 to use session numbers as described in the VMAN Conversion documentation (see TEC503829).

 

Question:

Is it possible to expand the 2-digit session numbers to 3-digit session numbers so that we can have more than 99 sessions?

 

Answer:

If you are using the provided TPXUCMND which works with a numerical value entered in the command line of the menu (see TEC503829), then the exit is capable of dealing with 3 digit numbers.

The MODEL statement on the TEN0041 and TEN0010 panels needs to be changed.  Insert an additional space between _Z<z and <UENTUSER+, shifting the remaining fields to the right as needed.

TEN0041:

----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8
)MODEL
  _Z<z <UENTUSER+ <z       + <z       + <z        +        ¬z                 +

to:

----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8
)MODEL 
  _Z<z  <UENTUSER+ <z       + <z       + <z        +       ¬z                 +

 

A similar change must also be made to TEN0010.
