DSMADMC screen format

Shot in the dark here.. Wouldn't be surprised if it's been asked before either...

Has anyone been able to find a way to extend the column character widths within the DSMADMC cli. (Any ver)

Always find it hard to read longer dom, pol & mc names when the columns within 'dsmadmc' are restricted to 9 chars and end up word wrapping on 2-4 lines!! Throw in a '_' and / or a '-' into the names and it's just a nightmare, no matter how wide you set the console screen.

Is there a way to change the screen format? Been through the limited 'properties' options for it but nothing makes a difference.

Maybe someone out there uses a different tool to get round this restriction?

Cheers

Have you try the -Displaymode parameter?

If not, may want to try something like the following:
dsmadmc -Displaymde=list ....
or
dsmadmc -Displaymode=table ....

The "D" have to be in caps, unless IBM have change this where lower case "d" can be used.
If the out put is too much . May want to redirect the out put to a file.
Don't use the -Outfile parameter.

Just redirect the out put.

dsmadmc -Displaymde=list .... > \path\file_name

Good Luck,
Sias

Thanks for the reply Sias,

While the -Displaymode=list option is a hell of a lot tidier on the screen and easier on the eye it can result in lot of the 'more...' prompts and scrolling. Reducing the size of the font can help but this isn't particularly good for the eyes.
I guess this is the trade-off and for me it's probably worth it.

Thanks again

All of my KSH scripts have used a lower case "d" - and yes it had worked for me since version 4.x
