When you don't use a map

I need to write a program in CICS that, as requested by the client, should not have a transaction ID. It should have only one physical map, a menu screen when the option is selected and another screen thrown over this screen. This new screen should not be a separate physical map and it should have no hidden fields. Is there any way of doing this?

I don't understand your question but you do need to go on a CICS programming course. Whether or not the user sees the transaction Id, there will be one and this will be used to initiate the transaction at the terminal. Again, I do not understand why you think that a new map cannot be used or non-display fields cannot be used.

If you are really not going to be able to use a map then you are going to have to code up a native LU2 flow with all attribute bytes physically coded.
