For this problem we have created a data set called 'UNTZ###.UNTZ###.COMPETE.PARTTWO' . Your user ID is purposefully used twice in this data set name; this aids IBM in the judging of your work when you are finished with this part of the contest. This data set is very important -- it will eventually contain all of your work to be handed in. From here on out, we will refer to this data set as COMPETE.PARTTWO . Your challenge: Go to the DSLIST panel ( ISPF option 3.4 ) and enter your user ID [if it is not already there] in the Dsname Level field. then press enter On the next panel, enter E to the left of COMPETE.PARTTWO . press enter On the command line, type S NEWMEMBR . [ NOT spelled newmember ] then enter In the editor session that automatically opens, enter "UNTZ### WAS HERE 2011 BCIS 3620," F3 back out, and you'll see that NEWMEMBR has been created in COMPETE.PARTTWO .

Navigation tip: To aid your navigation for this challenge, it's time you learned how to use an indispensable tool: screen splitting . From any ISPF panel, move your cursor to the topmost line and press the F2 key. You will notice that a brand new ISPF Primary Option Menu has appeared, and there is a row of dots across the top. You just started a second screen, which you can use just like you would use a normal screen. To toggle between your two screens, use the F9 key. (To view both screens at the same time, position your cursor where you want the split to occur and press the F2 key.) You might find this newfound knowledge helpful when you're comparing data sets, or copying output from one member into another. When you're done with your second screen, just position your cursor anywhere within that screen and hit F3 until you back all
