I assume you are referring 'primary command line' for the foll -

Code:
 Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR


If I got you properly, try your 'solution' once.

You are right, Murali.

What I have told is working fine.

But PDS should be opened... (say, thru' 3.4).

Correct me if I am wrong.

I believe TS wanted to open the member without opening PDS (like what we do 'listcat').

the way the O/P wrote the command makes people assume that He is doing it
from the line_command field of a 3.4 dataset list
( not from the command line of the panel )

otherwise it would be better to give the right hints in order to avoid useless traffic

Murali,

I got this from 100 COOL MAINFRAME TIPS pdf.

Here is a tip by which you can avoid ISPF 3.4 Option!!!

To Open a PS or PDS member, we usually use ISPF 3.4 to open in EDIT or BROWSE MODE.

Here is one way where one can open PS or PDS member in EDIT/VIEW/BROWSE mode from any command line.

Thus, we can avoid using 3.4 option.

Issue : EPDF ‘MYID.MYPS’ . The Dataset will be opened in EDIT MODE.

If you want to open in VIEW mode:
Issue : EPDF ‘MYID.MYPS’ VIEW

Similarly, for opening in BROWSE mode, type BROWSE at the end.

Hope this helps.

Correct me if I am wrong.

E memname can be given to open a member of PDS as below.

Code:
Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR 
                                                                               
Command - Enter "/" to select action                  Message           Volume
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E TEST   DGFE.REXX.EXEC         


Here TEST is a member in that PDS.

Or

Code:
E        DGFE.REXX.EXEC(TEST)

can be used.

/ against PDS is used to find out What are the Commands available. Those will be displayed in Pop-up.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Still I have not understood Your request
what do You need to know ???

let' s sum up the different options

from any panel "Command field at the top of the panel"..
epdf "dataset name" view/browse will take You to the dataset in view / browse
no option will take You to edit

from a member list in edit / view / browse
You can choose a member from the command field of the line using "S"
or by the command field on the panel entering "s member"

from a member list in "member list" ( "M" option in 3.4 ) You can
e/v/b in the command field in front of the member ...
or in command field at the top/bot of the panel enter "s member e/v/b"

or again as I SAID i one of my precedinfg posts
in the 3.4 dataset list enter in the command field in front of the dataset name...
e /(member)
v /(member)
b /(member)

REMEMBER the space between the command an the "slash"

Hi Amol,

you can provide

Code:

EPDF your.pds.name(MEMBER)


from control panel. It will open member directly in edit mode.

Amol,
In my env, this is working.

Code:
E TEST1 PU9361A.AMOL.TESTONE


You please try this, as Enrico Sorichetti said,

Code:
E /(TEST1) PU9361A.AMOL.TESTONE


REMEMBER that the space between the E and the "slash"

Yuo please refer the Enrico Sorichetti's reply in this thread for all the possible options.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Hi Friends,

I tried both the commands.

E TEST1 PU9361A.AMOL.TESTONE

and EPDF.

But i couldnt able to execute.

For the first case the screen prompts me with renter operand message (note I changed the dataset with my own PS name)

For the second case it is saying EPDF not found.

Is EPDF is shop specific ?

If not how to invoke the command ?

Hi Diwakar,

I don't think EPDF is shop specific command but I am not sure about it.

I have extracted this command from "100 Cool Mainframe Tips".

Regards,
KSK
