Hi,

I'm developing an ISPF screen where i have a list of variables and a Y/N to select that variable. The variables are read from a file and displayed on the screen. When i have for e.g. three lines and two variable names in the file, the output i get on screen is as below. Since the Y/N space is defined as an editable input field on the ISPF panel definition, if i press tab i can still reach that empty space. Can i make that disappear as well?

Make those field attributes variable and have the application program set the TYPE and SKIP values as needed.

faster to use a table...
depending on the number of values it might be unpractical to define that many ATTR types with the relative ATTRCHAR

Thanks a ton for your quick replies. Do you have any links where i can read about how to use tables in ISPF panels? Im not familiar with using tables and could use some documentation where i can get that information.
