Hi,

I am having issue when editing anydatset after position 71, When I place cursor on Pos 71 and try to edit it gives me a warning message 'Xport' in the bottom part of QWS3270(in Message area) and not allowing to edit anything from that postion. I am sure it needs some setting change. Could you please suggest what needs to be done.

Let me guess, your dataset has an LRECL=80 and positions 72-80 contain sequence numbers...

'nuff said...

Also make sure that you do not have any 'unprintable' characters in col 71. (Turn HEX ON to check, or use the HX line command).

What exactly are you editing your VSAM dataset with? Not TSO or ISPF, as standard, anyway.

Is it saying xport or is it a big diagonal cross with the word "port" to the right of it?

Let me make it more clear

When I scroll the page to right(F11) and bring that 72 Pos in the middle of the screen as below it allows me to edit.

Code:
Key                                        + Col 37      Insert Length 150   
       >--40---+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8----+----9----+----100--+---
****** ****  Top of data  ****                                                 
000001                                                                         
000002 I*INBD DFLT*                   (822)          TRASH                     
000003 I*INBD DFLT*                   (824)          TRASH                     
000004 OBoard of Ed Chicago           (824)          CPSACHD                   


But when this col falls at the right end of the screen as below it wont allows me to edit

Code:
 Key                                        + Col 1       Insert Length 150   
        <===+====10===+====2====+====3====+=>--4----+----5----+----6----+----7--
 ****** ****  Top of data  ****                                                 
 000001                                                                         
 000002                  AA                 I*INBD DFLT*                   (822)
 000003                  AG                 I*INBD DFLT*                   (824)

I found the problem was due to the Entry assist option was turned on. Now I turned it off (Ctrl+A) and it allowing me to edit at Post 72 and 73.

Thank you all for your time.

I only just picked up this thread, and my immediate thought was you had run into the entry assist foul up in QWS3270, which has caused me trouble from time to time.

I've used QWS3270 for almost 15 years now, and this entry assist is about the only complaint I've ever had with it. I'm glad you were able to diagnose and reset the "feature" on your own.
