This sounds like something that would be coded using ISPF, ISPF Services, and maybe an ISPF Edit Macro, not REXX. I don't know of any REXX or TSO commands or functions to do what you want.

Hi Jumana,

Do You mean

Dataset Name : xxx.yyyy.zzzz

Mamber Name: xyz123

Then, xxx.yyyy.zzzz(xyz123), should be opened for edit/browse/view mode????

In that case, a simple REXX code can be written or you can use
EPDF 'xxx.yyyy.zzzz(xyz123)' view/edit option to do the same!!

Hi All.

Thanks for the reply..

I want to display a panel similar to 3.4 option.

For example,


So this would open all the members in the dataset.

Similarly i want to open a dataset with a specified member only.(This is my requirement) similar to 3.4.

After that, i can open the member in edit/view/broswe mode.

I think that can be done by ISPF Service, but not sure how to do it.

Please help..
