LEFT primary command

You can use the LEFT primary command in:
  • View or Edit
  • A WebSphere® MQ selection list

In View or Edit, any display format apart from SNGL, the LEFT primary command scrolls to the left of your data. (This command is not valid in SNGL mode.)

The amount (number of columns) scrolled is determined by either an optional parameter or, if no parameter is entered, by the amount indicated in the Scroll field.
