Are you using TSO/ISPF? ROSCOE? CICS? And why are you posting your question in the COBOL section instead of the correct section? And using the topic title "jcl" is not a complete waste only because it indicates you are completely and totally clueless.

IF you are using TSO / ISPF, try entering HEX ON on the command line while in an Edit session. Also, learn what the PF1 key is used for.

I've moved this topci to a more appropriate location.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

As you have seen, there are acceptable "things to do" here and others that are not. . .

You need to use a meaningful title that tells what you are asking about. Nothing in your post has anything to do with JCL. . .

You also need to take time to make sure you post your question in the proper part of the forum. COBOL is only for COBOL topics.

As you have not mentioned which environment is being used, i'll guess it is TSO/ISPF. To do what i believe you want, Edit/View a member or file and enter HEX ON in the "Command ===> " area.
Hope this helps,

I have taken a liking to using the HX command rather than HEX ON. Type the HX command in the line command area of the editor. HX only applies to the specified line. This is different than the HEX ON primary command, which applies to the entire file.

You can also use HXX on two lines to set a range where the line is shown in hex mode.
