I've only played a little with user options in WDSC. I still go to PDM and things like WRKSPLF when I want to work with multiple items. I know that Navigator is a horrible interface for making, say, a change to the OUTQ of multiple spooled files - if you pick a bunch to change, you are prompted singly - even Explorer handles this better - Sheesh!!!

In PDM and several 'Work with ' panels, you put your option on all the items you want, then put the parameter on the command line and press enter - no prompting - all of them get that parameter. That is just amazing fast and efficient.

My question - how does WDSC handle multiple selected items, say like the thing I've described? If I pick several members to compile, can I put DBGVIEW(*ALL) anywhere and have it apply to all of them?

PDM is an old tool, part of ADTS. The WRKxxxPDM functionality is
replaced in RDi by filters. You can also have ad hoc views using the
table view. The RDi versions, being client/server, are slower than the
lightning fast inital load of most PDM screens, and that's been a major
complaint. But PDM is indeed considered a component of ADTS.
