FILE primary command

The FILE primary command issues the SAVE command, writing all changes made in panels used within the current editing task, and then returns you to your data set Entry panel. For example, using the FILE command on a “nested” template editing panel, such as the Field Attributes panel, saves all changes made on that panel, and any changes made on other panels used in the current template editing session, then return you to your data set Entry panel.

In an Edit session, the FILE command is synonymous with the END and EXIT commands.
