Participants should have a good working knowledge of data processing fundamentals.

This course provides an introduction to the ISPF menu structure, menu navigation, and dataset description. Next, the ever-useful Program Function (PF) KEYs and their functions are presented and discussed. Utility functions to allocate a new dataset, delete a dataset, and copy one dataset to another are demonstrated.

The Primary and Line commands of EDIT are covered in detail. Next, Job submission and output review also covered. Lastly, we review the use of the HELP facility to review and / or to learn more about ISPF functions.

Several hands-on exercises provide experience in the use of ISPF facilities including menu structure navigation, file allocation and deletion, copy data from one dataset to another and the Help facility.
