Hi @vicky 3292 

  1. Execute TE connect package
  2. Pause the bot
  3. Create a duplicate tab of the same bot
  4. Drag Simulate Keystroke package
  5. Provide a 'Title' of TE screen
  6. Specify the following pattern in the "Keystrokes" section
    1. [TAB] [INSERT]

If the requirement is to enter [INSERT] key then, you can pass the following pattern in the "Keystrokes" section 
[TAB] [INSERT]
 

To pass any key on TE screen via Simulate Keystroke package, make sure to pass the [TAB] key first then other keys will be followed.

Hi Raul ,

Tried this approach , still issue remains same.

The approach which was suggested is working on CONNECTION TYPE : TN3270E , not on VTSERIES

 

Thanks for your suggestion.

Have you verify if modifying the encoding works?
