How to execute a Clist panel program?

Postby mainframegeek » Mon Oct 29, 2012 9:03 pm

How can i execute the panel? So that i can see how does it look like on the screen.
Is there any way to execute?
I tried it doing through 6 option from ISPF Panel with command TSO EXEC 'dataset(member)'.
It didn't work. It throws the error given below.
IKJ56533I STMT 73 - IF STMT CONTAINS NO EXPRESSION OR THEN KEYWORD
IKJ56533I STMT 88 - IF STMT CONTAINS NO EXPRESSION OR THEN KEYWORD

Use ISPF option 7; sub-option 6 to concatenate (via a LIBDEF) the library containing the panel to ISPPLIB, and sub-option 2 to actually display and test it.

FYI. There are no such thing as a 'clist panel'. It is an ISPF panel.

FYI. You do not really execute panels; you DISPLAY them.

FYI. Many people do not consider panels to be programs. Historically, panels are not described as programs. It has been that way for so long that it looks odd to see 'panel programs'. Though, with the fairly new capability of imbedded rexx in panels and the existing panel capabilities, they -should- be considered programs.

I created a Panel in my personal PDS, i wanted to test its functionality. If i am using option 7, its not working for me.Option 7 is pointed to production libraries.
How can i test a ISPF Panel, which is present in my personal PDS.
Is there any CLIST program to access this or any Rexx program?

How is it not working for you? Did you actually follow the steps Akatsukami told you to do? Your post following it says that it worked so following those same steps should work again.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Earlier i executed the panel which was present in production libraries for panel. Now i made some changes to this ISPF panel and stored in my personal PDS. I cannot save this in production libraries, because i don't have access to it.So i saved it in personal PDS, now i want to test my changes.
It is throwing error given below
ISPP100               
                       
Panel 'VMDAP005' error
Panel not found.

It's not "throwing an error", it's "displaying an error message" (as Yoda said, "Do, or do not; there is no 'try'").

Did you LIBDEF your personal library to ISPPLIB whilst option 7? If not, execute sub-option 6, which displays a panel looking like the shell panel from ISPF option 6, and on the shell command line type:
LIBDEF ISPPLIB DATASET('your-library') STACK

(You'll have to do this every time you exit and enter option 7). Then go to sub-option 2 and execute your panel.
