ISPF Commands with Special Significance
This guide assumes you are already comfortable with ISPF. However, there are specific ISPF commands that have particular significance in ELIPS:
  • CANCEL
    Ends INFO or an edit session without applying changes to the member.
    The SAVE command might have already updated the member.
  • END
    Returns to the panel that invoked the present function and updates the member if data changes were made in EDIT or INFO.
  • KEYS
    The KEYS command displays a panel containing PF key definitions and labels for both primary and alternate PF keys. The panel is modifiable. You can use it to change PF key assignment.
  • NOTE {ON|OFF}
    Determines whether NOTE lines display.
  • PROFILE
    In EDIT, displays the user's ISPF Edit Profile for the member type being edited. Standard ISPF Profile commands entered on the command line change the profile.
    Make sure your Edit Profile is set correctly for the member type you are editing. ELIPS sets NUMBER according to the sequence numbers of the
    CA Librarian
    member and chooses a profile according to the
    CA Librarian
    member type. You must be sure that NOTE is on, CAPS are on or off, and so forth. Keep AUTONUM off.
  • RESET
    Can erase a display of NOTE lines, including any history records or profile information.
