SPLIT SCREENS Naming

Hi all..

We have the option of splitting the screen by F2 or starting a new screen by START, we can also see the list of all the split screens giving the
LIST <then> F9 command

Do we have any command to name the screen for recognising it easily..

Naming it the time when we are opening or later even.

Thanks in advance.

you will find that the online tutorial (F1) is very informative.

instead of LIST & F9, learn to use the appropriate ISPF commands,
which you will also find in the tutorial.

This sentence has a clue to what you are looking for...

Hi Anuj,

Thanks for the clue, but it is showing that

IKJ56500I COMMAND NAME NOT FOUND
***

When I am giving the NAME SCR command in the command line of the screen where I have opened a member of a PDS.

Regards,
Nagesh.

Nagesh,


NAME SCR (if it was a valid ISPF command),
would be NAME = command and SCR would be a parameter for the command.

it appears that you don't want to read the tutorial, even using the index.
maybe looking at an ispf manual in PDF format and doing searches could help.
or even try something like scrname. .

you only tried one combination of Anuj's suggestion.

Nagesh,

Well, SCRNAME is the command, something like

Code: Select all

SCRNAME screen1
, on command prompt should work.

Dick has suggested what is needed for you (reading manulas, and F1) long before my suggestion but it looks manuals are boring and if so, suggest you read through Sherlock Holmes to understand how to use clues to work for you... :)
