Abstract: For each screen appearing in an application to be automatically executed, information for spacifying the screen (e.g., a screen number or a characteristic message) is recorded, to be compared with another at the time of re-execution to confirm that the automatic execution is being carried out in accordance with a predetermined procedure. An action procedure (e.g., PA2 KEY) for each screen is recorded in preparation for appearance of an exceptional screen. Software is provided for recording an operational procedure of a keyboard or screen position's designation of an input/output variable and, thus, an operator is capable of recording screen specifying data, input variable data and output variable data while an application is being executed.
