Hi,


How to shift between multiple user screens using the F9 key? This should be included in any ISPF macro.


Thanks,

Reema

cannot be done..
for what reason would You switch the focus to an inactive logical screen ???
if You need to activate an application in a new logical screen investigate the use of the START service

Hi,

You might like to use "list + F9". On command prompt type "LIST" & press F9; this would list all the 'open' ISPF sessions, select the one You need.

It would show DSLIST for every screen, to distinguish among them you can use SCReeNAME command (SCRNAME).

Correct me if I misunderstood your question:

You can use the screen number + F9 to go to the desired panel in ISPF.

For example, If you have opened say 5 panels and you are in 1st panel and you wanted to goto 4 screen, you can just type number 4 at the command line and press F9 to goto the 4th screen.



Hope this helps,

Type 'keys' on command line. you will end up with different function keys with their function select any function key which has not been assigned any function then type 'swap list' besides that function key then exit from that screen.
whenever you want to swap between the screens press that function key and u can see the list of screens where u can select your desired screen.
