Looking at the print output from your FM/Db2 session

To browse, and optionally purge, the print output from your current FM/Db2 editor session held in the print data set:
  • Issue the PB primary command, or
  • Use the Print Browse utility function (3.11)

You specify the print data set using the PRINTDSN entry field on the Set Print Processing Options panel.

If you use the PB primary command or the Print Browse utility when you have not created any print output, FM/Db2 displays the message Empty print data set.

The following primary commands are available with Print Browse:
  • FIND

To select the Print Browse utility:

  1. From the Primary Option Menu panel, enter 3 (Utilities) to display the Utility Functions panel.
  2. From the Utility Functions panel, enter 11 (Print browse)
