Selecting a Task through the IUI

You must select the appropriate output for the SELECT TASK report. You can either display (in report or operator table format) or print the report.

  1. Select option TS from the Administrative Options Menu.

    The SELECT TASK screen is displayed.                       SELECT TASK                               hh:mm
     CMD ==>
                                                                           CMD: OPR
            P ... PRINT REPORT    D ... DISPLAY REPORT
       SERVER => ________
  2. Select one of the following display types.
    Option Description
    D Displays the report on your screen and is captured in the TMPDSN specified in the SIGNON defaults of the user.
    O or OPR Displays the report to your screen in the operator table format.
    P Sends the report to a printer.
    Note: If you are running in a IBM® Connect:Direct®/Plex environment, type the member name on which you want to perform the SELECT TASK in the SERVER field. If you leave this field blank in a IBM Connect:Direct/Plex environment, the SELECT TASK is performed on the IBM Connect:Direct/Manager. If you are running in a IBM Connect:Direct/Stand-alone Server environment, leave this field blank.
  3. Press ENTER.
