    Probably not much help, as I'm not familiar with Rumba, but from their white paper:

    VBA-type scripting support
    Enables automation via scripting to improve end-user
    productivity and streamline business processes. Supports the
    execution of existing Micro Focus OnWeb Web-to-Host,
    ViewNow, and/or competitive scripts on the Micro Focus
    Micro Focus RUMBA PC-to-Host platform, reducing the
    administrative costs associated with multi-client-type
    installations and consolidations.
    Custom application development
    Support for EHLLAPI and COM interfaces provides maximum
    flexibility and convenience for programmers, developers,
    and other IT professionals.
      I'm a big fan of O'reilly's Learning Perl. It's geared to people who have previous programming experience imo.
        Rumba scripting is pretty easy . if you have access to Rumba scripting editor,you will have all the keywords that it accepts and a short description of them. All you have to do is record all the actions and keep them in a loop.
