I am working in Mainframe Focus 7.6.5,

I need the Dialogue Manager to be Dyanmic.

ex : The Dialogue Manager for the users to Input values ::

-SET &NSR = '00.00;
-SET &PROD = '00.00;
-SET &LOYALTY = '00.00;

-" ENTER THE BELOW VALUES <\2"
-" NSR : &NSR"
-" PRODUCTS : &PROD"
-" LOYALTY : &LOYALTY"

I want the fields NSR,PRODUCTS and LOYALTY to come dynamically from the table.

Can I get any suggessions on this.

Please search for the PROMPT and FIND features.

I believe, one of these will satisfy your requirement.

Sanjeev, Stop trying to think of Dialogue Manager as -CRTFORM.

They are two totally different things.

It still works on the version we have, but I think that is 6.9

If it's FOCUS, -CRTFORM will still work. If it's WebFOCUS: NO CRTFORM!
If you want database values to be displayed in the -CRTFORM, first do a TABLE for these values, HOLD them and use -READ to populate your &VARs with the values.
If that's not feasible, think about either MODIFY (using CRTFORM commands) or MAINTAIN (using Winforms).

On a Mainframe FOCUS system. I'd like to see that.

Jack - MPAINT still launches the Maintain environment on the Mainframe. I have a couple of systems still running in VM.

MAINTAIN, I believe, originated on Mainframe.
