In the panel I've created, if I type ISPF commands in the input fields it gets executed. For example, if the input is file name, instead of file name if I enter the ISPF command 'START' it gets executed and creates a new screen, is there any way to stop this?

Errrm, START is the command to START a new ISPF session.

Methinks your EXEC is doing exactly as it has been told to do, START a new session.

In the panel we have the input field which expects file name as input as well as the command prompt .
1)If we enter the "START" command in the command prompt it should create a new screen.
2)If we give "START" in the input field it should give an error message to give valid file name,insted it creates a new screen.

Problem much clearer now after clarification.
As requested by Enrico, please post your panel defs.

In case this is the reason, it's probably not a good idea to use the ZCMD Command Line as anything else other than the command line.

Unless, of course, you code CMD() on the )BODY statement.

The first input area on the panel will be used as ZCMD area. Put a ZCMD line at the top of your panel as a place for commands, then your file name area will not be checked for commands.
