  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The Edit Interface Service (EDIF) and the View Interface Service
    (VIIF) use client written I/O.  Currently, the MEMBER edit macro
    statement can return invalid results, based on the contents of
    the data-name.
    
    The MEMBER edit macro command should return a blank value from
    EDIF and VIIF.
    

Local fix

  • Since neither the DATASET nor the MEMBER edit macro command can
    return valid data, do not use these commands with EDIF or VIIF.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All ISPF users.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The EDIF and VIIF services use the      *
    *                      dsname parameter to calculate the       *
    *                      member name for the MEMBER edit macro   *
    *                      command.  This is can cause the MEMBER  *
    *                      macro command to return unpredictable   *
    *                      results.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The member name returned from the MEMBER macro was being set to
    characters 48-54 of whatever was in the data-name parameter.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The member name is set to blank for the MEMBER macro when
    issued from an interface service.
