Hi All,

When we open a dataset to view or edit, we are getting the following screen before we get the actual data to be viewed or edited.

what is the use of this?

Code:

'AAAAAAA.BBBB.CCCC.DDDD'                         
* No workstation connection

Using that screen, you can specify the initial options for VIEWING/EDITING a dataset.

Setting is given like that.

If you don't want that screen, you please talk with MVS Shop Team.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Hi Agni,

Usually you type the command RES for viewing/editing the dataset when the dataset initially opens.
Using this entry Panel, Initial Macro . . RES, the command automatically gets executed each time you try to view/edit a dataset.

Hi,

Acronym 'RES' is referring to... REStart or Remote Environment Server. I also use this command, but not sure about the full-form.. (full-forms convey better message I think), if anyone knows here, please share.

You can turn off that panel using the options/DSLIST settings available in the top.

I am not sure of the name as i dont have access to mainframes.
