If I display an ISPF table, it might say something like this in the upper right:
Row 1 to 24 of 1,000

If I filter the table through the use of TBSARG, the message might be:
Row 370 from 1000

Where, in my case the filter was for a single item, it should be "Row 1 of 1"

Similar to: this post
does anybody have an example of how to set ZTDMSG? That is, is it possible to know the total number of rows selected by the filter and the relative position from the beginning?

Since seeing 'Row 370 from 1000' confuses the user when both values are seemingly not correct, I am considering putting a general, somewhat vague message.

option 1:
Row ? from ?

option 2:
or maybe just set a blank message so that the row information is suppressed altogether.

Which option do you think I should use? Other suggestions?

This has bugged me for years. Perhaps this would be a good candidate for an RFE.
