Member Selection in ISPF 3.4

The “%” and “*” characters represent a single character and many characters respectively. This can be done anywhere you can specify a member name. Keep in mind, using a single asterisk in place of a member name or mask is considered the entire member list. Some examples:

  • %%ABC selects all 5-letter member names ending in ABC;
  • ABC* selects all members beginning with ABC;
  • A*B*C selects all members beginning with A, ending in C, and having a B somewhere between the first and last characters.
