I am getting the below error when i try to view or edit any pds by using my id in mainframe.when i tried to view or edit,it automatically calls some macros and shows the below message.

Bad syntax of DSN/SPACE field
Refer A519114.EASYTRIV.REP. Or
Cursor will automatically locate to the error location
***

i thought the issue with this dataset,so i deleted this and tried editing some other member,but still gives the same error.

then i gave enter and F3 to come out of the member.it again gives the below attached error.it seems that some macro is being called autoamatically.Could you please help me on this

Hello,

When you receive this error, press F1, it would give you more details of who is using the PDS.

On the command line execute the command,
Quote:
tso isrddn e 'YOUR.PDS.NAME'

It will tell you if someone/some job is using your PDS.

Just a wild guess,

put E for edit infornt of a PS dataset,
when the below panel appears,
Code:

|                                                             |

What are the entries u have on Initial Macro and profile name?
Maybe try changing it to RES and then, go to your PDS and then try editing.
Hope it helps.

NO, nothing we can do,
too much traffic of questions and answers,
what happens when you do this, that, something else ...

talk to Your support, the error is not likely to be generated by a vanilla ISPF edit request !

more likely to be the consequence of a poorly written application , or poor handling of errors!

Edit any member,
Type 'PROF' to display profile information,
Check if you have IMACRO NONE.
If not, you have found the problem...

Hello Marso,
AS per the TS' description, User was unable to open the PDS wither view or edit, so he would not be able to issue PROF command.

Hello,

I would like to narrow down the possibilities of your problem. icon_smile.gif

I wonder, did you try to edit from ISPF menue 2?

Do you get this effect with every dataset? Or only with an dataset with an specific last qualifier? The edit profile is bound to the last qualifier of an dataset name.

Is "A519114.EASYTRIV.REP." the dataset name you intend to edit?

Could it be a problem with the TSO PROFILE? In that case "TSO PROFILE NOPREFIX" could help you.

What is the specification of your dataset? LRECL, RECFM, DSORG

I could help to get some more information.

With kind regards

Michael
