Combining screens

It is a common requirement to be able to gather output data from multiple host screens and present it in a single output page, or to provide a single input page, which then supplies multiple host screens with input data. ZIETrans provides several methods for performing these operations. The different methods include the use of screen combinations, screen customizations, transformations, macros, global variables, and Integration Objects. Which method you use depends upon the operation to be performed and the location of the data.

The following sections summarize four operations and possible ZIETrans methods for performing them. Combining operations and ZIETrans methods for performing them are not limited to those summarized below.
