Issue/Introduction

Question: 

PF1 can be used in the ISPF VOLSER INQUIRY DISPLAY Panel to get help about the fields from the TMC Volume Record. Is it possible to get help for the meaning of the individual Flag bits?

Answer: 

To get help on the FLAG bits place the cursor on the FLAG Value and press PF1 for Help. If you have  “FLAG1  = 45” for example, place the cursor on the 4 or 5 and press PF1. This will result in the “Volser Flag Display” Panel TMPHVFLG showing a three digit abbreviation for each bit:

Explain what FLAG1 is -        
      45          (CLO,SCR,RDS)

 

NOTE: If there is a highlighted message in the upper right corner like “*** SCRATCH TAPE ***” for example, PF1 has to be pressed twice. The first PF1 results in help for the message and the second one (cursor must be placed again on the hex value) results in help for the Flag bits.

Following a cross Reference for the Volume Flag bits with their three digit abbreviation:
