Hi, Is it possible to store a data set with 44 character long in the EASYedit panel: EZYPC01? 

We can only store a data set with 28 character length in the EASYedit panel: EZYPC01 in PDSMAN.

Here is the example:

Resolution

1) Go to the Ezyedit main panel

2) Hit PF1 which takes you to a screen that provides you extended options selections.

3) Tab down to item "O User Options" and put an S in front of this.

4) You will now be in the Ezyedit Options Menu, select number 1 General Options
