Attachmate Short Session IDs

Hi folks:

I am doing a bit of hllapi programming - and I want to interface with two host sessions.  I have the first application working properly.  I define Short Session Name of "A" and the thing takes off.  I can even watch what is happening on the "Session 1" emulator window.

When I try to open session 2 - which I assume is Short Session Name "B" - I get a session not found exception.  No emulator screen is altered by my executing code.  So I figure my assumption is wrong.

Anyone know where I can find the short names in Attachamte?  Please let me know.  Thanks.

Which HLLAPI implementation are you using?  I did a quick google search and found that there are a few out there.

Hello:

Sorry to let this sit to this point.  I am using Attachmate Extra as my emulator.  What I needed to do was configure my short names.  To do this, open any emulator window and choose Options, Global Preferences.  Select the Advanced Tab.  From here, you assign the short name to an EDP file.  (EDP - basically a file that configures one screen to your emulator.)  

The "A" short name was assigned as part of product installation.  (At least in my environment.)  But "B" - "Z" were not.  Once assigned, my code worked as expected.

Please close this item.  Thanks.
