Hi,

The following events occur when you run a typical executable program

INITIALIZATION

Before the standard selection screen is displayed

AT SELECTION-SCREEN

After user input on a selection screen has been processed, but while the selection screen is still active

START-OF-SELECTION

After the standard selection screen has been processed, before data is read from the logical database

END-OF-SELECTION

After all data has been read by the logical database

<b>For Classical Report Event:</b>

TOP-OF-PAGE

In list processing when a new page starts

END-OF-PAGE

In list processing when a page ends

<b>

For Logical Database:</b>

GET <table>

After the logical database has read an entry from the node <table>

GET <table> LATE

After all of the nodes of the logical database have been processed that are below <table> in the database hierarchy

<b>Interactive Report Events:</b>

TOP-OF-PAGE DURING LINE SELECTION

top of page event for secondary list.

AT LINE-SELECTION

When the user triggers the predefined function code PICK

AT PF<nn>

When the user triggers the predefined function code PF<nn>

AT USER-COMMAND

When the user triggers a function code defined in the program

If user-defined selection screens are called, the event sequence is imbedded accordingly in the current program flow.

INITIALIZATION

AT SELECTION-SCREEN OUTPUT

AT SELECTION-SCREEN ON VALUE REQUEST

AT SELECTION-SCREEN ON HELP REQUEST

AT SELECTION-SCREEN

START-OF-SELECTION

END-OF-SELECTION

Hope it helps u.

Thanks&Regards,

Ashok - the event LOAD-OF-PROGRAM is the first event executed. It's not widely used, but good to know about.
