Search the Job Log of an Active Job

Job logs for ended jobs, where the job log is in a spooled file, are easy to search on the green screen. When viewing the spooled job log, you simply enter your search text in the find field and press F16. In addition, you can use F14 to limit the columns in which your search is performed, then press F16 to search. 

However, when using the green screen, there is no find field when viewing the job log of an active job. Jobs with pending job logs have a similar problem.
