    saved when it is set in TWS for z/OS 8.6.0.
    In addition, for all releases, this field is not correctly
    padded when the value is not set.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The first problem (value not saved) was caused by a wrong
    variable specified in panel EQQMMGEP for that field.
    The second problem (padding of empty field) was caused
    by a missing initialization in the ISPF dialog code that
    displays panel EQQMMGEP.
