Implementing RPA with C# instead using RPA Tool

    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to automate mainframe i.e., Personal Communication emulator version 14.0 with C# coding.

    Actually we did this kind of automation in version 5.9 instead and it was successful. The connecting DLL was PCSHLL32.dll (by invoking this DLL we can create session and we can perform any kind of transaction into PCOMM), but I'm not sure in version 14.0 what would be the connecting DLL.

    Need your valuable input here on connecting DLL for PCOMM 14.0.

    Hi Nishank, 
    I think you could try IBM RPA to do this if you would like to download the free trial to check it out. 

    But for your question (about the connecting the DLL) I would try the IBM Z team forums here

    Thanks!

    Hi Nishank,

    I am interested in seeing how you get on with the DLL approach.  If you get stuck, consider using RPA and Personal Communication macros.  See vid below:
