If you are in Edit mode in a member and you want to open it in view mode you have two chance: one is exit from the member end re-enter in it, the second is using
Code:
VIEW mymember

To pass from edit to view. But in this case you will have the same member opened twice:current in view, the other in edit.

This work also from view to edit but if you make some substitution you will not able to find them in edit mode if you don't replace the member before(and if you don't save in the edit mode).

I hope in this suggest.

Hi gowtham_srgp,

Try this command...

In TSO command line type,

Code:
EPDF 'myid.name' VIEW


You need to specify your pds name along with your member name inside the quotes.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Hi All,

Quote:
TIP # 014
ISPF
Here is a tip by which you can avoid ISPF 3.4 Option!!!
To Open a PS or PDS member, we usually use ISPF 3.4 to open in EDIT or BROWSE
MODE.
Here is one way where one can open PS or PDS member in EDIT/VIEW/BROWSE
mode from any command line.
Thus, we can avoid using 3.4 option.
Issue : EPDF ‘MYID.MYPS’ . The Dataset will be opened in EDIT MODE
If you want to open in VIEW mode:
Issue : EPDF ‘MYID.MYPS’ VIEW
Similarly, for opening in BROWSE mode, type BROWSE at the end.

-"100 Mainframe tips".

Try it out and if it doesn't works then I will come up with a new solution.

Let me also check once about this issue.
