migration HP3000/HP9000 cursor positioning

Hi all,
I'm working on a migration of Cobol programs from HP3000 to HP9000. Up till now the interactive programs work fine except for one â littleâ (I hope) problem.
In my cobol programs I use escapes for locking and unlocking the display at a certain point. This works fine with MF cobol on the HP9000. However when I try to position the cursor at a specific column and row, it wonâ t work. On the HP3000 the escape is â esc&a00c17Yâ . Now I thought when I change the octal value of the escape in decimal (which works fine using locking and unlocking escapes) it would work. It doesnâ t work!
Could someone help me out with this please?
