Issue:

Have an element stored in CA Endevor.  When we browse the element, it looks compressed. However, when the element is Retrieved, it looks fine.

What is causing the compression? 

 

Resolution:

Check to see if the developer has "PACK ON" in their ISPF Edit profile.

If "PACK ON" is specified when the member is saved in Endevor, it is saved in the packed format.

Turn off the Pack value before Adding the element back into Endevor.
