Reply with quote

Hello!

Sometime back I was checking the list of available options to modify my ISPF profile in my site and without taking backup or anticipating the consequences I seem to have screwed my settings!!.. Now the problem is, when I intend to insert a blank line into a member of a certain PDS it inserts a comment line i.e it fills /* for the entire file length. I have to erase it and proceed with my actual input. This happens only for a certain PDS and only for ME, though it's a globally accessible PDS.

Utterly stupid, I know. I have no idea how to reset the statistics for my profile. Can someone point out to me what might have gone wrong?

Thanks!!

Hello,

Is the problem pds different from the others (i.e. pdse versus pds)?

What is "file length"? The line, the member, other?

Edit a member in the problem pds and post the profile. Edit a member in some other pds and post the profile. See if there are any differences in the profiles.

As a matter of fact, I created the "working" PDS taking "problem" PDS as base.

Just enter the command PROFILE och the command line and press enter
Code:
Command ===> profile                                          Scroll ===> CSR 
****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
=PROF> ....COBOL (FIXED - 80)....RECOVERY ON....NUMBER ON COB..................
=PROF> ....CAPS OFF....HEX OFF....NULLS ON STD....TABS OFF.....................
=PROF> ....AUTOSAVE ON....AUTONUM OFF....AUTOLIST OFF....STATS ON..............
=PROF> ....PROFILE UNLOCK....IMACRO NONE....PACK OFF....NOTE ON................
=PROF> ....HILITE COBOL CURSOR FIND............................................
=MASK> --****** This is the Mask which will be inserted as a new line ----     

If there is a row saying =MASK> , just delete is by enetering a D on the line and press enter.
The MASK is a way of getting a new line with some data in it, but after using it, dont forget to remove it!
