the issue is that the semicolon is considered as the multi command separator

like for example in
find all the lines not containing a STRING
which could be a one liner
Code:
exc all;find STRING all;flip


You must go into Your ISPF profile ( option 0 ) and choose a different char for
command separator/chaining

Thanks for quick reply,

But do we have any other way to find that delimiter character just like other special characters and even not the Hexadecimal search.

Hi,

Go to START;0 (Settings)

change 'COMMAND DELIMITER' from ';' to some other value, for ex ':'

Now do Find ';'

You will get the desired result
