HI,
if i try to open a dataset(PS file) in EDIT mode it is substituting BROWSE option automatically. May i know the reason why it is substituting BROWSE mode and is there any other way to open the same dataset in EDIT mode.

thanks,
jeyaraj.

Hi,
The Lrecl of your dataset must be more than 255 and consequently the ISPF will substitute BROWSE instead of EDIT mode!
you can update it's data using dfsort.
I don't think this one is related to JCL Forum!?

If the file is too large, it might be a REGION size problem. You may see (and sometimes - modify) your REGION size at the TSO logon screen.
