When I try to view/edit members in my PDS, in test LPAR, it gives me an error as "No format table; Format table ISRFORM does not exist."

I can browse the members but not view/edit them. Also, I can view/edit the members in a different LPAR.

Can someone help me out in this?
PS: I'm not sure whether this is the correct category to ask this questions, but still..

Thanks in advance,
Pallavi.

VIEW Entry panel is the one which appers once you key in the 'V' command to view a dataset/member.

Viz,

Adding to my perv post, it has 4 optional fields (Initial macro, Profile name, Format name, Panel name)

OP had issues in the "format name" field and got that fixed after giving the correct details.

Aaru,
Thanks for the quick response. Still i couldnt get what that view panel is. Giving V against dataset/member will make me view the data, and that is where i am facing this problem. I didnt get what you mean by saying we can see panel over there. Please Help.

From Main options, you can see VIEW 1. This will display VIEW Panel. So, please try to VIEW a PS from here...

Code:
Option ===>                                             
                                                         
 0     Settings    Terminal and user parameters         
 1     View        Display source data or listings

Or

You can turn on that panel using the OPTIONS/DSLIST/Display Edit/View entry panel (*) settings available in the top of 3.4 listing.

You're starting in the wrong place. You need to begin by displaying a list of datasets on 3.4 panel. Now go to Options on THAT panel.
