Note: If your Fault Entry List display does not show the PF keys, and you would like to see them, then enter the ISPF command:
FKA ON

Fields shown in yellow (default color) are point-and-shoot enabled. This enablement means that you can place the cursor on such fields and press the Enter key to display more information. For example, by selecting an abend code in the Abend or I_Abend columns, the explanation for that abend code is displayed.

The history file or view (see Using views) that was last selected while using the Z Abend Investigator ISPF interface is shown by default. The first time the interface is used, the initial history file name is obtained using the suboption of the DataSets option in effect. To select another history file or view, refer to Changing the history file or view displayed.

If a view was selected the last time the ISPF interface was used, and the view contains errors, then it is possible that an error display is presented prior to the Fault Entry List display. An example of an error display is shown in Figure 2.

To exit from the error display, press PF3.

The error display is shown each time the incorrect view member is read, and might therefore also be shown when, for example, the Fault Entry List Column Configuration display is presented. The identified errors in the view should be corrected to avoid this display.

Entries in the Fault Entry List display are by default listed in reverse chronological order with the most recent fault entry (based on abend date and time) shown at the top.

Each fault entry in the list occupies a single line and is identified by a fault ID on the left side of the display. Other information that might be displayed for each fault entry can be determined by the user. For details on this, refer to Fault entry list column configuration. The default information displayed, when no HistCols option is specified and no customization is made by the user, is as shown in Figure 1.

You can use the displayed fields to identify the faults you are interested in, or reduce the display to only a subset of the faults. For details on how to do this, refer to Sorting and matching fault entries.

As shown at the top of the display if help text is enabled (as illustrated in Figure 1), a number of line commands are available against individual history file entries. For details on these, see Applying an action to a particular fault. For information about how to show or hide help text, see Adding or removing help text.

This screen responds to the standard UP, DOWN, LEFT, and RIGHT commands, which by default are assigned to the PF7, PF8, PF10, and PF11 function keys respectively. These can be used to scroll the display horizontally or vertically as needed to see all of the information available.

Optional help text that lists the available line commands is displayed only when the top-most line of the display is shown. If the display is scrolled down any number of lines, this help text disappears, but reappears again if the display is scrolled to the top. For general information about help text, see Adding or removing help text.

The history file or view input field, and the column headings, are never scrolled out of view. However, if scrolling horizontally, the column headings scroll with the data below them.

The line command input fields on the left side of the display remains in that position regardless of any horizontal scrolling.

In the top right corner of the screen is the current top-most line number and indication of the left-most and right-most columns currently displayed.

The end of the fault entry list is indicated by the line:
*** Bottom of data.
This line is used to indicate the bottom of all Z Abend Investigator ISPF interface scrollable displays.

You exit from the Z Abend Investigator ISPF interface by issuing the Exit command (PF3) from the Fault Entry List display, or by selecting the Exit Z Abend Investigator option from the Fault Entry List display File menu.
