Hi,

I am experiencing an unusual problem with the start command.

Issue:

Suppose I am on the main screen and If I issue "START 3.4" command on ISPF command line.

Code:

  Menu  Utilities  Compilers  Options  Status  Help

  "/" on the data set list command field for the command prompt pop-up,       
  an ISPF line command, the name of a TSO command, CLIST, or REXX exec, or     
  "=" to execute the previous command.

Now If I press PF9 to go back to previous screen, I see the "Start 3.4" command is still retained there, and I get an error "Invalid Option"

Mine are

Release . : ISPF 6.1
OS/390 release . . . . : Z/OS 01.12.00

but I think, this has to be some ISPF setting which I am missing.

Does it do this every time you issue the START command? With any other commands?

Can you also let us know the command assigned to your PF9 key?

Given that PF9 appears to be doing exactly what it says on the label, swapping screen, I'm not sure that your question is going to garner any useful information.

gylbharat

I had exactly the same problem at a previous site.

I think I used SPLIT NEW to create the new screen but could not get it to accept the 3.4 part.

So basically I joined the two commands with the delimiter and entered SPLIT NEW ; 3.4 ;;

You will also need to position the cursor to where you want the split to occur as otherwise it will default to the command line of the current screen.

Hi,

I am not sure what is the problem. At my previous site this problem was not there.

My PF9 key is set to SWAP.

Expat,

I tried SPLIT NEW command, but I am more comfortable with START command.
