Edit/View - Copy panel

The Edit/View - Copy panel allows you to specify details about the data you want to copy into a data set.

Z Data Tools displays this panel when you enter the COPY primary command in a browse or edit session but without specifying the data set or member of a partitioned data set from which the data is to be copied.

Data set/path name
Can be a fully-qualified data set name or a pattern, or a HFS file or directory. The data set name may include a member name or name pattern in parenthesis. If the member is specified here, the associated Member name (or mask) field must be empty.

When you specify an HFS file or directory, you must enter a full path name. If the path name is longer than the displayed entry field, press the Expand function key (F4) to display a pop-up window in which you can enter a longer name.

Member name (or mask)
If you specified the name of a partitioned data set (PDS) without including a member name or name pattern in parenthesis in the Data set name field, then you can use this field to specify the member name or a member name pattern.
Volume serial
Serial number of the volume which contains the data set. Required for data sets which are not cataloged.
First line
The number of the first line in the source file from which you want to copy data.
Last line
The number of the last line in the source file from which you want to copy data.
Binary mode
When processing an HFS file, allows you to specify binary mode (selected) or text mode (unselected).
When processing an HFS file and the Binary mode option is selected, records are derived based on the fixed record length specified. The default is 80.

Can be in the range: 1–32760
