Re: Prompting WRKOBJ command shows Major Command Groups menu


Thanks Buck - another good point, and quicker than installing a different emulator. I tried it with the Win XP telnet client, and it prompted just fine with both user profiles.

Did you try to reproduce the problem using a different emulator? Try
with IBM's Client Access, or the "open source" TN5250 emulator, from:


or some other 5250 emulator.

Also, ensure you do not have some kind of keyboard macro defined that
may be changing the behavior of F4 to erase input and then press F4?
In a pinch, simple telnet will work. To send AID keys like Command-4,
press the escape key then the number 4 at the top of the keyboard. Some
telnet clients will negotiate properly and let you press the F4 key on
the keyboard, but it's good to know about the old way just in case...
