Go thru 'tutorial' available in FileAid. Few lines from it -
BROWSE/EDIT MODE - INITIAL DATA DISPLAY MODE
Four styles of data display are available when viewing your data file
records: C (Character), F (Formatted), V (Vertical format), U (Unformatted).
The MODE field lets you choose the display style you want to see first.
After the initial display, you use commands (CHAR, FMT, VFMT, UNFMT) to
switch your display mode as often as you like. Valid MODE values,
switching commands and restrictions are as follows:
C CHARACTER - Full screen ISPF-like display of records, one record per
line. Overtype data to make changes. Use HEX command to view hex
values. Use FMT command to switch to formatted mode, VFMT to switch
to vertical formatted mode, UNFMT command to switch to unformatted
mode. Use line and primary commands to work with data.
