Note: When on Windows 7 64-Bit, Client Access will install under Program Files (x86). When putting the files that are specified in the video in their appropriate directories, make sure they are named the same (case sensitive). Change "emulator" to EMULATOR and "private" to PRIVATE.

Once this is done. Open ZEUS.WS or any variation thereof and find the HOSTNAME parameter. It should say "ODIN.senecac.on.ca". This is not the server we are using. We are using ZEUS. Change the HOSTNAME paramater to HostName=ZEUS.senecac.on.ca.

Launch Client Access with any of the preferred .ws files and login as normal!

Ensure that the alert statements from Record 2 (This test will be dropped) DO NOT enter the area of record one. If the text constant enters the space of the first record the formatting will not execute properly. If the text constant overlays the first format the second format will execute as a new screen. If you are getting two pages instead of one, check to see where your text constants are located.

Lab 8


On page 6 when you are creating the command source, make sure that you do not allow the characters to exceed column 70. If you go past column 70, it will not be interpreted.

There is a very good resource on the course website reference material link. It's the IBM Manuals. If you are not sure about something, try searching there.

F1 and F4 function keys are our best friends in this course. They can be pressed nearly under any circumstances. Just click on the place you are not sure about, and press them.

Problems 1

Hello friends,

I was working on Lab 8 and unfortunately I was forget to include indicator F3. After running my program i was unable to exit so i exit abnormally and resulting in error while running program next time.

Error No : CPF4131

Thanx in Advance for Solution.


CPF4131 means that your file has changed, so you must recompile your CL or RPG program!

When creating commands, don't forget about the RSTD (Restricted Values) parameter. Using RSTD(*YES) means that only values on the value list can be entered!

Problem 2


As I was attempting to complete lab 8, I ran into an error MCH3601, which means one of my parmaters are not correct. I've double checked my parameters but I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Please help

Sorry I didn't see your message earlier. I need to see you code to figure this one out. The command entry screen passes parameters to your cl program, so if you're call in the program from the command line, it would be: call dspsyslvlp ('*DISPLAY' '*NO' '*NO') Hopefully, you've already asked this question in the lab!



Lab 9

Lab 10

Remember to test your menu with the userid given in the lab! Options 3 and 6 need a little bit more thought than the others!

I want to be reminded about what you said about the adding another user with *USE authority on the last page of lab 10.

Use the EDTOBJAUT command or the PDM short cut EA. Press F6 and add the user.

Lab 11

Lab 12

In the data transfer section of the lab, after browsing to your students file and clicking on 'Transfer data from AS/400' might not work until you change the time and date settings to 'USA Standard'. You can find and change this setting by clicking on 'Format Options...' select the date and time drop down lists (there are two drop down lists) then select 'USA Standard'. - C16
