Craig,

Ok I think I understand.

Honestly, not sure how to do what you need....but I can tell you that "sending an enter" isn't going
to work.

As mentioned before, the enter key is intercepted and handled by the terminal or emulation software,
then the controller, then the OS, along with probably a couple of other layers...

You need to remember that the 5250 protocol is a block (or screen) oriented "smart" protocol. As
opposed to ASCII VT type terminals which are byte oriented.

The application you're running on the wireless PC could have used available TN5250 APIs to appear as
any other 5250 session. Not the best way IMHO, but that'd be your only option if for example the 5250
program is 3rd party and you don't have the source.

I'm not really sure what you're going to need to do this. Perhaps example 3 here will be of some
help:

oc/evfclmst89.htm

or http://tinyurl.com/6p4oxr

You say you're getting a 1255 on the CHAIN to the subfile:

How are you figuring out with RRN to use for the CHAIN?

What other messages and/or error codes are being shown?

Charles,

Here is what I am trying to do:

I have a program that uses a barcode reader as a keyboard (or you can key
the barcode).

This program builds and updates a subfile and displays the status of the
pack telling the user how many boxes still need to be packed.

No problems at all with the program.

I am now adding a dataq so that a wireless PC (MC9090G) adds the same
entry
through the dataq and it can be processed as is with little or no operator
changes (it works exactly the same as it does now except the scan is by a
pocket PC with its own IP address that writes to a data que).

The first screen which asks for order number and pick number works
perfectly
through the dataq (this builds the subfile).

Now the HDMA label is read (or a sequence number for RFID) and everything
again works well until a chain to the SUBFILE is done (to substract
quantity
and calculate the remaining on the screen).
I am getting a status of 1255 (Session or device error occurred. Recovery
may be possible).

Now I either have to figure out how to activate the subfile (there was no
read, so the subfile is not active) or have the data q entry go to the
screen and read that entry WITHOUT HITTING ENTER! The packers cannot scan
from maybe 50 or more feet away and then go to their Client Access just to
hit enter.

The screen is set with WaitRcd *Immed and is overridden at initialization
for DTAQ (user's name) and is USROPN.

No not really....

The hex code the barcode scanner sends doesn't make it to the field.
Instead, it is intercepted and
handled by the terminal or terminal emulation software.

Still not sure exactly what're trying to accomplish...

Do you have a scanner?
Is it set to auto-enter after a scan?

If the answer to both is yes, what more are you trying to do?

In any even, as far as the hex codes used by the scanner:

I want it to work like a barcode scan.
One input field, variable length data.
There must be some hex code you can add to make it auto enter.
I am using a data que and can't get the subfile to work.
When I receive an entry from the data que, I would like to concatenate
the
enter field so it auto enters.
Again, barcode scanners do this, it must be able to be done.

Thanks,

Craig

Use the DDS keyword CHECK(ER) on the last field in the display. When
the user types anything into the last position of the field, it will be
sent just as if the user had pressed the enter key.

Barcode readers can usually be configured to auto enter a scan.
How do they do it?

TIA,

Craig
