how to determine session name in Extra! attachmate

how to determine session name in Extra! attachmate

how to determine session name in Extra! attachmate

(OP)
I have a bunch of macros written by our business folks and one of the issues that I would like to solve with these is that they do not tell you which session or environment they ran in at execution.

I need to be able to find the name of the active session...not the name of the entire extra emulator session but like CICS production vs CICS test vs TSO session names w/in the extra attachmate session.

Does anybody know how to do this?

RE: how to determine session name in Extra! attachmate

Kind of long, but I run this through an access data base to break down which sess. vs. which control entity was needed. Then wrote this code to go in check and back out.  Hope this helps...

Sub Main()
'--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dim Sys As Object, Sess As Object
Dim Conn As Object, RS As ADODB.Recordset, DB As Object, Sql As String, DLR As String
  
    Set Sys = CreateObject("Extra.system")

    Set RS = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    
    
 '******* You will need to change your DB address and SQL to match you path, database and table name
    
    
    Set DB = CurrentDb
    
    Sql = "Select * from Closed_Macro_Q ORDER BY Sess_Ltr, comp, DLR_NBR;"
    Set Conn = Application.CurrentProject.Connection
    
    RS.Open Sql, Conn
    
    
    
    

' Get the main system object
    Dim Sessions As Object
    Set System = CreateObject("EXTRA.System")   ' Gets the system object
    If (System Is Nothing) Then
        MsgBox "Could not create the EXTRA System object.  Stopping macro playback."
        Stop
    End If
    Set Sessions = System.Sessions

        MsgBox "Could not create the Sessions collection object.  Stopping macro playback."
