If you want to make your VSAM data set read-only, use INHIBIT with ALTER command. E.g. ALTER XXX.XX.DATA INHIBIT ALTER XXX.XX.INDEX INHIBIT

SORT CHA / SORT CHANGED If we want to know what are all components modifed recently in a PDS. Go to PDS, type SORT CHA or SORT CHANGED, all members will be sorted on modifed date and time.

For a "sometimes" shortcut method of sorting, just key "sort" at the command line, place the cursor on the heading of the column you want to sort on, and hit "enter".

Use TSO HOMETEST to find the Mainfram IP. This IP Address can be used with FTP GET , to unload files from mainframe.

hi,

This is for the people who use extra to connect to mainframes ...

whenever you open a dataset ... if we press home(crsr returns to command position) --- this column is always 7 .....

The Menu bar at the top (file,edit ....compiler) .... The Compiler 'Compiler' is column 40(which is standards for alignment usually) ....

i think this will save us some time typing COLS command.

I just want to know whether we can post these kinda tips!(if not please remove it)

To save myself from some keying, I assign "res;col" to F14 since I oftentimes start editing COBOL source that way anyway. I usually assign shift+F7 (F19) to UP max and shift+F8 to DOWN max. Same for shift+F10 and shift+F11 for left and right max. Easy to remember.

If you want to locate a member in a PDS based on specific userid, type -

SORT ID - now all members would be sorted according to userid(ascending order)

After this to locate the specific user, type -

LOCATE <userid> or simply L <userid>.

Hope this is useful.

Want to access the last edited member of your PDS with ease.:

Just open a PDS in Option 3.4. In the menu bar, choose the option “Functions“.

In the drop down menu, choose the option 3 for “Initial Sort View “
Then, Select option 6 in the obtained screen to set the initial sort view (changed)

Just remember not to fully-trust the ISPF statistics: They can be easily altered using the LMMSTATS service.
