Hi,

I think I have changed something in my mainframe profile or ISPF settings. Now my tso find commands are not finding the partial strings and works only on the whole word find that too only some times it works.I know for sure that this particular text which am searching exist in my file but the 'f search-string' is not giving expected results..

Could any of you please help to get this resolved, I understand I havenot given much details, But am not sure what details I must provide to troubleshoot this.. Thank you for your help and time

Regards,
Karthik Sripal J

By "tso find" do you mean the FIND command of ISPF Edit?

It could be that it is only searching certain columns. Check your boundary settings. Type BNDS in the line command area. Blank out the line it produces.

If that does not work, can you give us an example of:

Also, can you provide some sample data?

Edited to remove clutter.

Anyways for something like this I usually type in what I think I want and then even if it doesn't work the way I want I'll hit pf1 a couple of times. The first time it'll usually give me a thumbnail explanation and then the second time in depth.

Sometimes that's an easy way to learn - kind of step by step through the marshes.

So whoever is reading this if they're a bit on the light side I hope that comes in handy.

Maybe you are doing your "find" incorrectly.

find 'Al' {finds a three for me}

Code:
ALABAMA
Alabama
alabama

I atlast figured out why - I have accidentally switched bounds to a part of the screen :$ which lead to this.

then I gave the command BNDS 1 80 and then the issue resolved. Am so embarrased :$

karthik, You must be doubly embarrassed because you had the answer within two hours of posting your question.

I was familiar with the problem because I had done something similar in the past.
