How to query the currently active instance in the protocol exit?

How to query the active instance?

The current instance can be queried via the TABEX/4 interface.

The TABEX/4 interface has to be integrated in your exit program: "%use $TAB4PTINF". The current instance can then be queried using "$TAB4_INTF.getInst()" e.g.:

dcl instance char(08)
instance = $TAB4_INF.getInst()
