Combining noncontiguous output data

For this example, noncontiguous output data is defined as output data that appears in multiple rectangular regions on a host screen and may appear at different locations on other, not necessarily consecutive, screens of the same host application. Examples of this would be any data that might be spread throughout multiple screens of a host application.

To combine this type of data, you can use ZIETrans macros to automatically navigate through the host screens and use the macro Add Extract Action function either to gather data into global variables for later display in a single transformation or to use a ZIETrans macro event handler transformation to display the data. For information about using ZIETrans macros, see Macros and host terminal. For information about using ZIETrans global variables, see Interacting with global variables.
