I am looking for way(s) to search for a number in hex format in a dataset, which is readable in Startool.

I have tried the 3.14 option, in vain.

Hello Padmaja Venkatesha and welcome to the forums,

Can you browse the dataset in tso/ispf? If you can, you can do a
Code:
F X'value'
and the cursor will be placed on the first occurrance of the value you specified.

I am not familiar with ":Startool". . . .

Thanks !

I used f x'value' to search the number, where value is number in hexadecimal. But the problem was, I had decimal equivalent handy and I had to convert each time and then find.

Nice that the Windows Calculator will do this convert with a single mouse click, rather than the "old" way of dong it manually icon_smile.gif

Thank you for posting that it is working for you.
