Hi Everyone; This is my first post. On the View Entry Panel, when I used to type first three letters of the member, it would give me the option "member name (Press Enter to insert)". It was so convenient. For some reason I don't receive this option anymore and I have to type the full member’s name manually every time. Would someone help me to reactivate this option? Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I do not recognize the 'press Enter to insert' option. IMHO, it seems like a setting from the emulator, rather than ISPF.

But in ISPF, you can type the first three characters followed by an asterisk character. It will give you a partial member list. In the member list, type 's' to select a particular member.

You can also use %-sign to just mask a single character. icon_wink.gif

That was an emulator setting (File/Settings/Productivity/Configure Auto Complete). Thank you all of you so much for directing me to the correct settings. I appricated it very much. My issue is resolved now.
