Map Commands

Online maps (CA ADS) and file maps (CA ADS Batch) are created and stored in the data dictionary using the CA IDMS mapping facility. Map modification commands change the copy of the map maintained for a particular dialog, not the stored map definition. For more information about maps and map attributes, see the CA IDMS Mapping Facility section.
