“RFIND is not active” in the SDSF

Filed under: learning,mainframe,Useful Links — Himanshubhai Mistry @ 8:26 pm

RFind PF5/PF6 is not working in my SDSF

In SDSF  the Repeat find command is not available as the application ID is different and do not share the same keys listing as ISPF….

We have to change the keys list for SDSF (one time setting –of course in one shop)

  1. Go to SDSF;ST
  2. Select all of any JOB
  3. Type ‘keys’ and hit return key
  4. On PF5 (or PF6) type IFIND in stead of RFIND
  5. Hit PF3 

VOILA… WE are done…!!!

Now WE can repeat find using the same PF5 (or PF6) as we do in ISPF……..

I got the information from following websites:

Steve,
SDSF runs under a unique Application ID so the PFkey definitions are separate from ISPF. Enter KEYS when in SDSF to verify the value for PF5.

Hi I found the following statement in the appendix of the sdsf manual … maybe it helps       

If you use the Repeat-Find PF keys under ISPF and they don’t invoke the 
Repeat Find function, the problem may be that the SDSF table library was 
not concatenated correctly with the ISPF table libraries. You may also see 
the ISPF message RFIND NOT ACTIVE to indicate this. The SDSF Repeat-Find key should be defined as IFIND.

  2. Is someone having a laugh here? – I changed my PF5 key to IFIND in SDSF – when I use it I am taken to the input queue to display classes of FIN and D !!!!!
