Hi,

If i try to use HI (HILITE) / JCK or any other ISPF commands in ISPF editor getting error "not valid command" with the only datasets with starting qualifier my userid (userid.*), not with dev/prod datasets.

I checked with PROFILE, HILITE was OFF, tried to ON it, still getting error "invalid command".

But all these were working fine few days back.

Please let me know how to reset the profile with my user id.

hi raghav08,

Probably your profile is locked. See your security manager for to get this options.

Paddy,

But you can see --- "PROFILE UNLOCK" status in PROFILE.
Still you are asking to contact RACF admin?

Perhaps a 400 byte LRECL file is unable to use HI LITE and other options? It's not the standard 80 bytes.

Bill,

You are right, i verified for other libraries having 80 bytes standard LRECL, HILITE is working.

Thanks a lot for your update, haven't knew that.

For a JCLLIB, I recommend using a dataset of RECFM=FB and LRECL=254. And yes, HILITE will work.

It's great if you ever need to use longer-than-80 byte SYSIN records. There's no real downside to it. Although, I wish it would solve the problem with PARM having to be no more than 100 bytes, and still having to be broken-up across multiple 80-byte records.

hi again,

UNLOCK is a possibility to lock profile for particular file. This macro is handled by user. I not correctly looked at your profile and now i see FB 400. The max length record for hilite is 254.

best Regards.

Hi Kevin,

my understanding of a SYSIN DD * is it denotes an 80 byte record.

So I don't understand how you can use longer than 80 byte SYSIN's unless it points to a dataset.

If I submit a job with a SYSIN DD * and the data is longer than 80 bytes, only the first 80 bytes are visible after the job is submitted to the INTRDR.

Let me re-phrase that a bit to be instream data, not necessarily SYSIN data, although I consider both to be the same in concept.

Hi Kevin,

Maybe be I'm barking up the wrong tree.

I submitted a job with SYSUT1 DD * and still only 80 bytes is submiited, data > 80 is lost.

Hi,

Once again, late to the party. . . icon_cool.gif

I believe it is this - "DD *" - rather than the ddname.

If some of my memory is still hanging in, i believe the length of in-stream data is an installation parameter.
