xpeditor has excellent online help/tutorials.
you should also avail yourself of the documentation,
that will be available at your site,
if your site has a valid license.
also, why post this question in the DFSORT forum and not the xpeditor forum?
I realize that it easier for you to post this question on several websites,
instead of just reading documentation.

Also - how do you "invoke" xpeditor for the interactive-testing differs from shop to shop. Usual process is - get your-program' listings in DDIO file, and start the interactive-testing. However, to be able to do that you need to "set-up" your xpeditor-profile first, for your RACF/TSO ID; and that's pretty site specific which can not be addressed by a Forum.
Suggest you get in touch with someone at your shop to set-up your xpeditor or go through the documentation (but documentation would tell how to use the product not how the product can be used for an individuals's need.).

This should not make a difference as long as your program is a batch-program.
Usually what I've seen is -- shops have different DDIO-files for Batch-programs and on-line (CICS, not sure about IMS-DC though) programs and you need to get the listings in the correct DDIO-file to be able to debug your program.
