Could not find the dialog name for TASK that invokes ADSORUN1


Article ID: 16812


Updated On:




We have a task that invokes ADSORUN1. I was under the impression this TASK name would be a mainline dialog name, but there is no such dialog. What does this task invoke?


Release: IDADSO00100-18.5-ADS-for CA-IDMS


The TASK code that invokes ADSORUN1 can be the name of a Mainline Dialog.

It can also be a task code defined to invoke an ADSA Application. 

In the ADSA application definition you specify the Task code (that must be defined in sysgen to invoke ADSORUN1) and of course all of the dialogs that are executed as part of the Application are defined as well, including the initial mainline dialog. 

To find the ADSA application name for a specific TASK Code that invokes ADSORUN1:

While set to the correct DICTNAME for the Application and Dialogs in question, at ENTER NEXT TASK CODE issue 

LOOK [email protected] 

This is the module that contains the Task codes and ADSA Application names (updated by the ADSA compiler). 

If you scan the decimal portion of the LOOK dump looking for the TASK codes you are interested in, the next literal will be the ADSA Application name 

Example, here is a portin of said display:

the table starts at +40 


so TASK Code ADSA invokes Application $TOOLTCF (as do a few other Task codes) 

TASK Code ALBUM invokes Application BCBALBUM... etc
