Inserting and Updating Type Files through the IUI

To access the Type Record Selection List to perform this procedure, follow these steps.

  1. Select option IT from the Administrative Options Menu. The Insert/Update Type Record screen is displayed.

    The Insert/Update Type Record screen prompts you for the action to perform (Insert or Update) and the Type key.

  2. Type the requested information and press ENTER. IBM® Connect:Direct® displays an error message if you attempt to insert an existing record or update a nonexistent record.
  3. From the Type Record Selection List screen, select either the General Dataset Attributes, IOEXIT Parameters, or the SMS/VSAM Attributes option by typing an S next to the appropriate entry and pressing Enter.
     node.name              Type Record Selection List           hh:mm
     CMD ==>
    
     Operation   ==> UPDATE
     Type Key    ==> X
    
            _    General Dataset Attributes
            _    IOEXIT Parameters
            _    SMS/VSAM Attributes
    
            Select the entries above to view and/or update the
            respective parameters.
    
            Enter the END command to perform the updates.
              -or-
            Enter the CANcel command to abandon your changes.
  4. Type END from the Type Record Selection List or select another option to perform the update.
  5. From the Type Record General Dataset Attributes screen, define or update the file attributes for the Type record. See INSERT TYPE and UPDATE TYPE Commands for a description of the fields on this screen you can update.
    node.name          Type Record General Dataset Attributes           hh:mm
    CMD ==>
    
    (DISP=)     Initial file status      ==> ___    (SHR,NEW,OLD,MOD,RPL)

    (VOL=SER=)  Volume serial      ==> ______
    Type the END command to return to the Type Record Selection List.
  6. The Type Record IOEXIT Parameters screen (a TSO edit screen) enables you to define or update the IOEXIT parameters associated with the Type record. Refer to the IOEXIT parameter description for valid values.
     node.name                  Type Record IOEXIT Parameters                   hh:mm
     Cmd ==>                                                         Scroll ===> PAGE
    
            IOEXIT Specifications (exitname,{parameter,parameter,...})
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ****** **************************** Bottom of Data ******************************
    After defining or updating the IOEXIT specifications, type the END command to return to the Type Record Selection List.
  7. The Type Record SMS/VSAM Parameters screen enables you to define or update parameters related to SMS controlled data sets and VSAM files.
