TSO/ISPF - Changing Your Edit Profile

An Edit Profile is a set of characteristics that defines the way you can edit a data set. For example, a profile can be set up to edit data that is all in capital letters, or to edit data that is in mixed-case letters.

ISPF generates a default edit profile based on the library type of the data set you are editing. Usually, the default profile is suitable for the kind of data you want to put in the data set. However, sometimes it is not. To look at the edit profile for this data set, at the Command ===> prompt, type:

    profile
