Hi

I am trying to create a dataset using the 3.2 option in ISPF. I am creating a dataset with my userid as the first qualifier. In general if the quotes are not put in place the default is to create with userid as default. I have accidentally disabled that option and I want to enable it. Kindly help.

Regards Suraj

Thanx Akatsukami it worked.

Is there a way other than PREFIX to disable the usage of userid. I am sure I have never used the PREFIX option

As far as I know, PREFIX is the only way.

PREFIX is also a command in SDSF - perhaps you thought you were entering the command on an SDSF panel and accidentally issued it elsewhere. With my braincell it certainly is possible but I do not know what the reult wouold be. Probably have to be highly unlucky to enter a valid command in the wrong place!

Oops...there is another issue now because of this change. I am unable to open any other datasets in the normal way. I mean if I have to open a dataset which starts with any other qualifier I have to give quotes in the 3.4 option. My intent of the question was only in case of allocation and copy of datasets and not in the listing of datasets
