Working from the 'Edit template by IBM Editor' display it is possible to:

This facility is virtually identical to that provided for the editing of RDML commands via the IBM supplied editor SEU.

Unless you are completely comfortable with the coding and construction of normal RDML programs and using the IBM editors to edit them, it is recommended that you do not use this facility.

It is recommended that the IBM Source Edit Utility (SEU) be used for editing templates. However, if SEU is not available the template commands may be maintained using the Edit File command (EDTF).

The construction of application templates and the use of application template commands is described in Template Commands and Variables in the Technical Reference Guide. Make absolutely sure that you have read and understood all the relevant sections in this guide before attempting to use this facility.
