I have a PDS that when editing a member, the I line command inserts asterisks instead of a blank line. Also when creating a new member the member is created with asterisks instead of blank lines. Has anyone ran into this problem before. I've tried our help desk, but not much luck. I have also tried creating a new PDS, copying the members, and then renaming the new PDS to the old PDS name, still inserts asterisks. Thanks for the help.

On the command line, issue PROFILE to check your profile. Your MASK is probably set to asterisks.

Thank You! That worked. I did not even notice the mask in the profile, looked like part of the program.
