I've designed a ISPF Panel whose functionality is governed by the program. One functional of the panel is to open skeleton JCL in ISPSLIB in edit more, making changes based on user and submit the job. I'm doing this by using "FTOPEN" & "FTCLOSE" ISPEXEC commands.

But when I'm doing changes to the JCL, it is permanently getting reflected within the skeleton JCL (present in ISPSLIB library) and also system variable (Z-variables) are not getting chagned by users profile. As a result flexibility is not there and the design is proving wrong.

Could anyone guide me related to the command that I need to use?

If you edit the skeleton rather than the the generated JCL what did you expect ?
