2.2.3.1  (01-01-2015)
Update PICF Data (Command Code TSCHG)

  1. This Command Code is used to effect changes to PICF data elements. Changes are always addressed through the Partnership record in order that multiple element changes can be effected thru one screen input. (i.e. Partner Record and PICF Linkage Record elements may be changed thru one screen input).

  2. TSCHG will count each request completed and display the results in the message, "REQUEST COMPLETED/UPDATES nnnn" , where nnnn is the number of completed requests. TSCHG’s definer Z will initialize the update counter to zero.

  3. This Command Code utilizes a free form method of data entry. This involves input of fixed Partnership data on Line 1, fixed Partner data on Line 2 (when appropriate) and variable element data on Lines 3 thru 12.

  4. Variable elements 01 thru 35 are input in the format "NN-vvvvvv" . NN is an item number as assigned in the table below. The "-" (hyphen) acts as a breaker between the item number and the input element data "vvvvvv" . A "," (comma) is used to designate the end of an input element. Only one element at a time may be input on Line 3 on a TSCHGM.

  5. The following elements may be changed by Command Code TSCHG within the limitations prescribed for each individual element.
