  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Remove ISPF restriction preventing the actual count of objects returned from using the SARG command

Please remove the ISPF restriction that is preventing the following in Db2 Admin Tool (rejected in DB2ZADMTL-I-85) -


I have used panel ADB21K and the count as an example below, but the misleading count occurs on other panels when you have used the SARG panel to filter.



On panel ADB21K, I have 117 packages listed against a table. The count is shown at the top right of the screen as "Row 1 from 117 ". The Valid field shows them as Y,A or N.


I type SARG on the command line to go to panel ADB2SARG. Next to the Valid field, I type NE in the Srch Oper field and N in the Srch Value field.

In other words, I only want to have a list of packages marked as Y or A. I hit Enter and F3 back to panel ADB21K.


The count at the top right of this screen still shows "Row 1 from 117". As I F8 through the list of packages, the 'n' value in "Row n from 117" jumps, according to the packages no longer displaying, I guess.


I do not want to see the "117" figure, I want to know how many packages have been returned from entering details in the SARG panel, not how many packages there were originally.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Anyone wanting to know the number of objects returned from using the SARG command
Priority Justification The ISPF restriction is preventing the amendment in Db2 Admin Tool to allow an accurate count to be displayed on the screen of rows returned from the SARG command..
How should it work?

Once the ISPF restriction is removed, Db2 Admin Tool can be amended to allow an accurate count of rows returned when using the SARG command.
