Suppose the file is in the format, like as

=COLS> ----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7--
****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
000001 ####KADAM##############################################
000002 ####RAKES###############################################
000003 ####SUSHI###############################################
000004 ####ANANT###############################################


Now I want to view the text starting from column 5 upto column 9 only for all rows, and want to delete other part.
Please guide me which command should I use.

You can run macros like
C ALL P'=' ' ' 1 4;C ALL P'=' ' ' 10 80

which will change the data to spaces for more information check "ISPF Edit Macros"

If you have some file viewer and you know exact column number you want to see can use DISP ONLYcommand

Hello,

What is "some file viewer"?

DISP ONLY is not a standard view/edit command.
Hope this helps,

I have worked at a place that had an ISPF facility which allowed one to specify which columns you wanted displayed. I looked at my current system and cannot find any reference to this so it is obviously a more recent version of ISPF. I cannot remember the command either so that is not much good but be aware that in ISPF there MAY be a facility for what you want. Just dig around, look at the edit entry panel (where you speciy the file to be printed).
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I worked on FILEAID. If i wanted to see any column, I opened the file and write the column number.
For example for column number 2 and 8 , " disp 2 8 only".

I have found the ISPF solution - on the edit entry panel is a field
Format Name

Here you enter the name of a format which is set up in option 3.11 - ignore the bit about it being for 5550 screens or dbcs: it works just dandy with 3270 type screens.
