Issue:

When a CA Endevor menu panel is displayed, the number in front of an option is blanked out. Why?

Environment:
All supported versions of CA Endevor SCM
Cause:

The ENHOPT FIXED_PANEL_OPT#S option in the CA Endevor ENCOPTBL table is turned on.

***********************************************************************
* THE ENDEVOR PRIMARY OPTION AND FOREGROUND OPTION PANELS ARE          
* ARE TAILORED ACCORDING TO A USER'S AUTHORITY TO PERFORM AN ACTION OR 
* FUNCTION.  NORMALLY, WHEN OPTIONS ARE OMITTED THE SUBSEQUENT OPTIONS 
* ARE RENUMBERED TO MAINTAIN A CONTINUOUS SEQUENCE.                    
*                                                                      
* WITH THIS OPTION TURNED ON, IF A USER IS NOT AUTHORIZED FOR A PANEL  
* OPTION, THE OPTION NUMBER (LETTER) WILL SIMPLY BE BLANKED OUT TO     
* INDICATE THE OPTION IS UNAVAILABLE.

Resolution:

If you do not need to retain the original numbering on the panel for CA Endevor Workbench and want the entries the users are not authorized to use removed from the panel, then

1. Comment out the ENHOPT FIXED_PANEL_OPT#S  line in the ENCOPTBL table by placing an * in column 1

2. Reassemble and link the ENCOPTBL table
