In Oracle7 SQL*Plus, on our OS/390 systems, command "edit abc123" takes the user to ISPF editor, data set uid.ORACLE.SQL, member ABC123. (The value of EDITFILE is "ORACLE", and SUFFIX is "SQL".)

In Oracle8 SQL*Plus, the same command takes the user to ISPF editor, data set uid.ABC123.SQL.

I can't find a reason in Oracle7 books why ABC123 is used as a PDS member name instead of an override for EDITFILE, but users like it that way and want Oracle8 to behave the same.

How can I make Oracle8 work like Oracle7?

Steve,

I use a clist to run sqlplus. In the clist I allocate an ORA$FNA dataset. This is what is in the dataset;
FSA ( FTYPE(SQL) FNAME ('/DSN/PDPJN.ORA.SQL(+)') ) This acts like your version 7 did.
