SEL
Default. Displays the Record Selection Criteria panel or the Dynamic Template panel, as appropriate for the current template.

If you are currently using a dynamic template, the CEDIT or CEDIT SEL (or DEDIT) command displays the Dynamic Template panel, where you can select and edit the existing fields in the template, create new fields and enter record selection criteria by field, before returning to viewing the data set with the updated template.

If you are using a template that was generated from a copybook, the CEDIT or CEDIT SEL (or DEDIT) command displays the Record Selection Criteria panel, where you can enter criteria by field, before returning to viewing the data set with the updated template.

ID
Displays the Record Identification Criteria panel for the currently selected Record Type in a copybook template. If the copybook contains multiple record types and no record type selection has yet been defined, this is the first record type described in the copybook.

If the current template is dynamic, this parameter is invalid.

If you are not using a template, the CEDIT, CEDIT SEL or CEDIT ID (or DEDIT) command displays the Dynamic Template panel, where you can create and select fields in a new dynamic template and enter record selection criteria by fields.
