HI All,

I used the ISPF compare utility. Opened a test member and the compared with production version by writing on command line

Code:
Compare 'prod_lib(Mem_name)'


It takes me to the 1st change. The change is lablelled .OAAAA and the next change is labelled .OAAAAB and so on.

Is their any way to look for changes directly from one change to other? Otherwise I have to type
Code:
 L .OAAAAA
and then
Code:
L .OAAAAB


I also checked QW COMPARE but details were not avaialble on it.

Thanks.
Rahul

The easiest way is to use the exclude option:
Code:
Compare 'prod_lib(Mem_name)' X

You can use LOC LAB to jump to next label or LOC SPE to jump to deleted lines (shown with '=====') but it's not very useful in this case, as COMPARE will (certainly) lead to a mix of LABs and SPEs
