Data Set Selection panel

The Data Set Selection panel lists all data sets that match the data set name pattern provided on a process Entry panel, for example, on the View Entry panel. From this panel, you can select a data set for processing.

The panel can be called from a number of different locations (see "Parent panels" below). On some occasions, the panel title is modified to reflect its current usage. For example, when called from the Copy Utility From panel, the title reads "Copy From Data Set Selection".
