      Cooperative product that automates the process of PC-to-mainframe
      connection, data access, formatting and transfer of mainframe data for
      immediate use with a variety of PC products. Consists of a PC program
      that controls all user interaction, and a host server that performs
      mainframe data retrieval, selection and formatting. It is a
      cooperative product in its internal design and in its data access and
      transfer capabilities. The Nomad Host Access Server provides the core
      of the product's functionality and operates transparently to the user.
      The server executes in the host Nomad environment and can retrieve
      any mainframe Nomad-accessible data, including DB2, SQL/DS, IMS, IDMS,
      VSAM, and QSAM. The server receives the PC request for data,
      activates the appropriate data source, retrieves the data, applies
      screening criteria where required, formats the data for target PC
      products and transfers the formatted data to the user's workstation.
      In addition, status messages are sent to the workstation as each step
      is successfully completed. The PC program provides an interface
      portion which conducts the user dialogue and uses a menu bar and
      pull-down and pop-up windows. A Nomad connect script provides
      transparent host logon and logoff.
