Populating Z Data Tools base functions with more than one resource or data set name

The common Z Data Tools functions have one or two primary data sets, and one or two templates depending on the function. You can define a reference member or any member to provide data sets names in the following format:

DSN1(Member) Template1(member) DSN2(Member) Template2(Member)

These are four data sets names with optional member names. Use a dash (-) as a place holder where a data set name is not provided. The data set names and member names can be generic.

Example:

Edit a reference member with the following data sets:
HFM.FROM.PANELS - HFM.TO.PANELS -

Place the cursor on HFM.FROM.PANELS anywhere in the data set name and press F4.
