Quickly locate compile errors using SEU

Quickly locate compile errors using SEU

When a batch compile fails, open up the source member and press F15 (Browse/Copy Options) and select option 2 (Spool file) to open the listing in a split screen session.

In the bottom window, enter the command "F *ERR" and press enter. This command will find the next error in the source file. F16 will repeat the search.

As a bonus, the second-level message text is viewable by placing the cursor on the message line and pressing F1.

Finally, since you already have the source member open, it is a breeze to make any required changes.
