Map help problem

Hi All:

At the State of Iowa Department of Human Services, the CA/IDMS
Dictionary Migrator is used to migrate applications to production. This
may not have anything to do with the problem.

We recently migrated an ADSA application to the production environment.
The
IDD shows there are LOAD, SOURCE and PROGRAM entities now defined for
map help modules. When using MAPC compiler, it shows that the map help
is correctly defined for a map. A DCMT display shows that the program
for the help text is there. We have tried NCI-ing the MAP and the HELP,
however, no matter what we do, when invoking HELP on the map (PF1 -
defined in ADSA as the HELP function) the APPLICATION CONTROL FACILITY
HELP SCREEN is all that shows.

It does not do this for all screens, but most.

Any ideas?

Re: Map help problem
"This sounds like you are using ADSA and have defined PF1 for Application
help and that you have also defined PF1 for MAP Help?

I have always been under the impression that they both cannot use the exact
same PF key for Help. I just did a test and had PF1 for the Application and
PF2 for the map and it works fine?

"Are you sure that the map-help source text has been migrated?
The migratory might not move it.
Just punching out then recompiling the map in the target dictionary will
not bring over the source to the map-help with it.
