I needed some help on using the COMPAREX tool from SERENA -- How and where Can I select the option so that I see the compare output in an alphanumeric format and not the default HEC format ?

Hello,

What have you tried (show what you submitted)?

What happened (show a bit of the output)?

What do you want different?

Here is what I am doing.

1) I am specifying the file names selecting the option 2
Code:
 
                                                                           
0 - SHORT CUT  - Single screen for options and dataset names (recommended)
1 - OPTIONS    - Specify compare options for this session                 
2 - FILES      - Specify file names to be compared                         
3 - SAVE       - Save options profile for future sessions                 
4 - LOAD       - Select/Delete options profile from prior session(s)       
5 - CLEAR      - Clear previously loaded profile                           
6 - FOREGROUND - Invoke SERENA COMPAREX in the foreground and wait         
7 - BACKGROUND - Invoke SERENA COMPAREX as a submitted batch job           
8 - BACKGROUND - Similar to above but edit job (and optionally SUBMIT)     
9 - PARSE      - Parse Copylib for keyword assistance                     
X - EXIT       - Exit                                                     

Then I am running the comparex .. and getting the following output

Code:

CPX21I - SYSUT1=E0421T.E0421STI.STIEXT.T121005           DCB=(DSORG=PS,RECFM=VB,
                                                         VOL=SER=TSBNFL         
CPX22I - SYSUT2=E0421T.E0421STI.STIEXT.P121005           DCB=(DSORG=PS,RECFM=VB,
                                                         VOL=SER=TSBNBA         
CPX25I - TEXT,MLC=10,BUFF=60                                                   
          SERENA COMPAREX  (MVS - 8.7.0 - 2012/111)    IKJACCNT    TUESDAY OCTOB
SYSUT1=E0421T.E0421STI.STIEXT.T121005,SYSUT2=E0421T.E0421STI.STIEXT.P121005     
                                                                               
        C8C5C1C4 C5D94040 4040F5F0 F2F2F0F1  F2F1F0F1 F6F0F8F3 F7F0F9F8 F0

        40404040 4040E4E2 C4F2F0F1 F2F1F0F0  F5F0F0F0 F0F0F0F0 F0404040 40404040
        40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040  F84BF6F4 F0D4C5E3 40404040 40404040
        40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040  404040C4 C5C6C1E4 D3E3E9E9 E9F0F0F0
        40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040  40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040


As you can see , the values are shown as HEX values ..I want them to be displayed as ALPHANUMERICS so that I can export them to a .txt file

Hello,

My systems do not use comparex.

What does the Options selections offer?

As mentioned before, what does the manual say?

If you choose the option to run this in batch (background), you may find something in the control info to get what you want.

Or you could always ask Serena Support . . .

I have only used COMPAREX in batch and by cloning another job - no panels - nothing. However, I would certainly look at Options. Unfortunately I was an idiot this last weekend (nothing unusual there!) and left my work pen drive at home so it is in the UK and I am in Ireland. Otherwise I could have looked at my COMPAREX jobs to see if I could spot anything useful.
