Hello,

Well, it appears that the copy/paste left off many fields. . . .

You should see
Other Partitioned, Sequential or VSAM Data Set, or z/OS UNIX file:     
   Name . . . . .                                                     
   Volume Serial . .           (If not cataloged)
before the "options" and you enter the dataset name you want to view.
You may or may not beed to enclose the dsn within quotes.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi Dick, No - this is the panel you get when you put V or E against against a sequential dataset name in 3.4.
Mohbaig - did you look at the help for this?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

On the 3.4 dslist panel, panel ISRUDSL0, use the action bar -> Options -> DSLIST settings:

  File  Colors  Workstation  Help                 
sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
ISRDLSET          Data Set List Settings Main     
                                                   
   General Options                                 
   Enter "/" to select option                     
      Display Edit/View entry panel (*)

   /  Show status for MO, CO, D, and RS actions
