This morning I find myself having to issue 'TSO IOF' to view my output.
Prior - I was able to access typing 'I'
Now - getting 'NO MATCH'. Thus 'TSO IOF'.
While this command solves my immediate problem of viewing my output jobs I've now lost the capability to switch / split screen once this command is issued.
What happened and how can I resolve this ?
The other TSO users are not experiencing this problem.

Is the IOF option available on the Primary ISPF Panel?

You may alert your tech support staff to get help.

There may be an issue with your ISPF command table.

When you use TSO IOF from the ISPF command line you are effectively exiting ISPF to run the command line IOF. That's why you are losing split screen.

I agree with dneufarth. You need assistance from your tech support.

I have informed my HELP desk but haven't heard back. Was hoping it was something I can resolve myself. Thanks for the suggestions.

Do a memberlist of your ISPF profile dataset, hint: do TSO ISRDDN and look for the ISPPROF DDname.
Depending on your startup you should have member ISPFPROF, ISRPROF or both.
Copy those members to another dataset.
Delete those member and logoff/on.
If it works now then you have proved that the issue was with the ISPF profile.
Copy the members back one by one and logoff/on till the problem reappears, then you know which memer it was. It is hard to fix an ISPF profile, so I would delete the member again and logoff/on and reestablish values as you go along.

Use TSO ISPVCALL to list your active Command Tables. Steps as follows:

1) TSO ISPVCALL
2) <type how you usually invoke IOF>
3) TSO ISPVCALL

Somewhere at the beginning of the listing (<userid>.ISPVCALL.TRACE) you will see what is defined in your current setup to invoke IOF command.

Code:
==========================< Active Command Tables >=====================
ABCDCMDS  WXYZCMDS  SITECMDS  ISPCMDS                                   
======================< Entries in Open Command Tables >================
