Saving changes without ending the Edit session

To save changes you have made to the current data set or member, without ending the Edit session, use the SAVE command.

Z Data Tools keeps only changed records in memory, unless using a MEMORY record limit, or using record sampling, or using a segmented template with selection criteria. If you run out of memory, the SAVE command may free some memory, which would let you continue the Edit session.

Note: This command is not supported when editing a large file using an auxiliary data set. In this case, you must end the Edit session to save the changes and then re-edit the data set if you want to make further changes.
