To edit unformatted field and segment data

  1. In the IMS Database Editor, retrieve a segment occurrence. The data for the occurrence appears in the Segment or Field data area at the bottom of the window.
  2. Click in the Segment or Field data area and do one or more of the following:
    • Edit the data fields directly.
    • Use ISRT, REPL, and DLET DL/I calls to insert, replace, and delete segments.
    • Progress from one segment to another using GHN, GHNP, and GNU DL/I calls.
Note: If you have the Update warning option checked, click Yes to enable data updates. See To configure edit warnings for more information.
