Entering a member directly through 3.4

Postby gidonlando » Sun Jun 26, 2011 1:08 pm

Hey,
Is it possible to enter a member directly through ISPF 3.4 "Data Set List Utillity" menu?

When i try entering a member name enclosed in parentheses (Example userid.REXX.EXEC(TEST) ) it treast the member name as part of the last qualifier.
Same thing happens when i enclose the whole dataset name in quotation marks (Example: 'userid.REXX.EXEC(TEST)' ).
Any ideas?

What do you mean by "Why would you?"
Do you mean why would i think it was possible or why would i want to do it.

If i know the name of the member i want to work on, it would be more convenient to enter it straight through 3.4 instead of entering the dataset first and then selecting the member.

Well, look for a different option than "Data Set List Utillity". A member is not a "data set". Do you know how to find the on-line tutorial? Have a look around that.

Hey

hey who ?
if You want You might address Your dog with hey, not people who will spend time helping You
if You want good answers start learning the good manners
:evil:

the answer is YES/NO depending on what You want to achieve!

whatever the command ISPF builtin or TSO command
You can use <commandname> /(<membername>)

and Your command will receive as first argument <pdsname>(<membername>) verbatim

try wit a simple rexx script
/* rexx */
parse arg args
say args
exit 0


to make the most out of the questions You ask it would be wise for You to read and meditate on
how to ask questions the smart way here

If you intend to enter a dataset name and member name in the Dsname Level . . . line, no, you can't.

However, you can append a member name to a dataset in the DSLIST - Data Sets Matching xxxx screen, and specify an appropriate command.

If your goal is a member search through multiple datasets that is not a capability in ISPF.

Actually, if you give the command "M member" while the 3.4 list is displayed, ISPF will put a message next to the datsets containing that particulr member:

  Menu  Options  View  Utilities  Compilers  Help
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DSLIST - Data Sets Matching PRINO                              Member(s) found
Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR

Command - Enter "/" to select action                  Message           Volume
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         PRINO.RAHP.LIST                              Member: LIFT      FUSR1A
         PRINO.RAHP.MSGS                                                FUSR11
         PRINO.RAHP.PLI                               Member: LIFT      FUSR26
         PRINO.RAHP.SKEL                                                FUSR12
***************************** End of Data Set list ****************************

and you can allocate a number of datasets to a DDNAME and use the same capability in the dataset list displayed by ISRDDN.

Additional, the M option in both the 3.4 and ISRDDN list even work with wildcards!

If you're editing and know the dataset name just use Option 2 - Edit
