ISPF Command

Postby padha24_se » Fri Dec 09, 2011 7:12 pm

I have been working on one Module in Cobol. Today I have done some changes and have not added that to Endevor. But later I found that whatever I have done today is not needed. I would like to retain the version which I had yesterday. Is there any command to do that ? Please advise.

If you have not sent it back to Endevor then the old version will still be there.
If you mean that the program has never been on Endevor then...were you changing the original? If so, WHY? (And how were you authorised to change it?). If you are lucky there may be a backup of the PDS that the member is in. If you are unlucky then there may still be a copy of the previous compile. If you are extremely unlucky...start looking for a new job.

And do not ask about backups - they are site specific so speak to colleagues in your department/storage guys.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Even if the new version was added to Endevor, the older one should still be there.

and how is the issue ISPF related

the fact that ENDEVOR is an application using ISPF services
does not automatically make ENDEVOR issues ISPF issues

wiser to post to the proper section of the forums ( CA and friends )
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
