It sounds like your site uses a modified ISPF command table. And therefore you miss when ISPF makes changes to its command table.

The solution is for your site to delete it's copy of ISPCMDS and instead use the SITECMDS table, which should only contain your local changes.

Search your ISPTLIB concatenation to see if the actual ISPCMDS is farther down in the list. Perhaps you can change the order of concatenation so that you use the product default table, rather than the site's modified table.

You can 'fix' it for yourself by using USERCMDS table with the correct entries. Use ISPF option 3.9 to add entries. You at least need entries for SWAPBAR and SCRNAME.

ps: having a tiered system of command tables was a suggestion I made to ISPF developers in the 1990's. You are welcome.
