The example below shows both the Full Screen Editor and the Line Editor modifying the same query. The example illustrates the compatibility of the two editors.

In the first screen below, we see query FINANC01, using the Full Screen editor. Note that the TITLE statement contains 'MR ROGERS'.

Figure 1

To use the Line Editor on the same query, FINANC01, use the Batch Simulator INFOSB JCL member supplied with CA VISION:Inform Release 4.0.

Use the following commands at the //INF.INFIN DD * in the INFOSB member to list the query. This verifies that line 400 contains 'MR.ROGERS' in the TITLE.

Next, change and save the query with 'MR. JONES' in place of 'MR ROGERS' in the TITLE, use the following commands in the Line Editor:

-   LOGON SYSTEM
-    LIST ITEM FINANC01 QUERY
-    EDIT FINANC01
-    400 TITLE 'FINANC01 LIST FIELDS FOR MR JONES'
-    SAVE FINANC01
-    END EDIT
-    LIST ITEM FINANC01 QUERY
-    QUIT

The INFPRINT file output:

Note:

  1. First bold line 400 contains 'MR.ROGERS' in the TITLE - this is from the Full Screen Editor TITLE.
  2. Second bold line 400 contains 'MR.JONES' in the TITLE - this is the Line Editor change to the TITLE.
  3. Third bold line 400 contains 'MR.JONES' in the TITLE - this is Line Editor change after listing it.

Figure 2

Now, open FINANC01 using the Full Screen Editor. Note that Line Editor 'MR JONES' change is in the TITLE in line 400.

Figure 3

Now change 'MR JONES' to 'MR SMITH' in the Full Screen Editor and save it.

Figure 4

Now open the query again in the Full Screen Editor to see the new change.

Figure 5

Verification of the compatibility is complete because Query FINANC01 has been modified, opened and saved by both the Line Editor and the Full Screen Editor.
