HI,

I am getting error while opening a dataset in EDIT / VIEW mode. The message is "No format found". I can only open in browse mode. I searched for the same in Forum and I found some solutions. But this is not working for me. Can someone suggest as what needs to be done !

Is this errors comes from ISPF editor?

Can you post the datasets attributes (LRECL, DSORG, RECFM etc.)?

Code:

            Name     Prompt       
S_________ $member   /     

Put the / in when you select a member and this will display a second screen. In this screen blank out whatever is in the format field.

This is not related to any particular dataset. For every dataset I am getting the same error.

Hi Expat,

I'm unable to see PROMT when I'm in ISPF 3.4 listing.

Code:
   File  Display  Library  Settings  Menu  Utilities  Test  Help  Exit         
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 -IPT--VIEW L1------ GNANAS.PLI.SOURCE ------------------------ROW 00001 OF 00016
 COMMAND  ===>                                                SCROLL ===> CSR   
                                                                               
    NAME    RENAME   LIB VV.MM CREATED     CHANGED      SIZE  INIT   MOD USERID
   FREAD               1 01.19 07/11/21 08/10/10 09:05  2322  2201    19 GNANAS   


Please let me know the use of PROMPT and how to get it.

That does not look like a standard 3.4 screen to me.

Hi,
Open any PDS in 3.4 option, you can get the member name and then PROMPT will be there.

Yes, you are correct.

My TSO/ISPF is enhanced with SPIFFY.

I just wonder if I can get PROMPT. icon_exclaim.gif

No, it's a good enhancement to ISPF. We have many useful commands in handy because of SPIFFY.

Instead of selecting the member via a 3.4 member list, select it after using E as a line command on a data set list. For my version of ISPF, it makes a difference.

Sorry, I did not meant to put down SPIFFY. Its just that in this specific case, the user wanted the prompt field that SPIFFY did not provide.
