we are successfully using tn5250 for accessing our AS/400 from 70

there is always a little fight between the AS/400 programmers, who prefer
ClientAccess, and the rest of the IT department, who prefers tn5250.

Wow - very cool.

The corresponding code on the AS/400 side is

        (...)
        EDTCODE(Y) EDTMASK('  &  &    ')
        DSPATR(UL HI)  COLOR(WHT)
        (...)

I can get similar code to compile on my machine. Should that be EDTCDE and EDTMSK? Also, no matter what I choose, the compile always fails with an incorrect shift attribute error. Can you post more of the code for this field? Here is what I'm trying:

A            DFDATE        10Y 0B 22 54EDTCDE(Y)
A                                      EDTMSK('  &  &    ')

Does anyone has an idea, what the problem is? Is this a bug in tn5250? Is
there a clever way to change to code on AS/400 side? Any help would be
appreciated.

Can you tell me which version of tn5250 you are using? 'tn5250 -version' should do the trick. If you are using version 0.17.2 or later, can you tell me if you are running in enhanced mode?

Please don't let the programmers (and ClientAccess) win... ;-)

I'll do everything I can!
