Thanks Dick, icon_biggrin.gif

This may not be considered as a trick, but it maybe useful:

To add a calendar in your main TPX menu:
Select STATUS tab in the MENU bar and select Calendar

To reverse the exclude status of a range of lines
type FLIP in the command line

To search for picture strings:
Code:
A picture string is used to describe the type of string to be found   
instead of the exact characters to be found.                           
                                                                       
    Example -   ===> find p'¬' 1        find non-blank in column 1     
                                                                       
A picture string is a quoted string that is preceded or followed by the
letter "P".  It can contain blanks, alphabetic and numeric characters 
which represent themselves, or any of the special characters listed   
below, each of which represents a class of characters.                 
    =  any character                   .  invalid characters           
    @  alphabetic characters           -  non-numeric characters       
    #  numeric characters              <  lower case alphabetics       
    $  special characters              >  upper case alphabetics       
    ¬  non-blank characters                                           
                                                                       
Where possible, the special characters were selected to make them easy
to remember.  For example, $ for special characters, # for numbers,   
¬ (not sign) for non-blank, < (less than) for lower case.

Reply with quote

hi all,

Sorry for the late entry to the list. I would like to list few ISPF tips i came across. Its DSLIST

Situation: I want to list a set of datasets in my 3.4 panel which are having different HLQs or naming convention ( Eg: i need to list all my PARMLIBs CPAC.PARMLIB, SYS1.PARMLIB, SYS1.IBM.PARMLIB ) in single 3.4 panel

Solution: Create a DSLIST and issue DSLIST PARMLIBS (where PARMLIBS is my DSLIST for listing above said parmlibs).

1) go to 3.4 panel and select Ref option2 from Action bar.
2)By default you will see the default REFLIST which has last 30 ref referenced datasets.
3)Take FILE -> New List from Action bar
4)Here in this panel give the names of datasets you wish to list in ur DSLIST. Remember You have to enclose in single quotes in PREFIX is ON. You can use wildcard * for qualifying multiple datasets.
5)Now put S in Action and give a reasonable name for ur list.
6)Done. The list is saved. Now you can call this list from anywhere in ISPF env. Like DSLIST PARMLIBS



Thanks
Shameem

Try Doug Nadel's Add highlighting to SDSF exec. It's a mystery to me as to why something similar hasn't been added to SDSF proper...
