If you are currently using a dynamic template, the DEDIT (or CEDIT or CEDIT SEL) 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 DEDIT (or CEDIT or CEDIT SEL) 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.

If you are not using a template, the 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.

You can abbreviate the command DEDIT to DE.
