The manual or the product, or the support people from the company producing it. Perhaps your support people.

First, see if whatever can actually be invoked via Rexx. Check the manual which your site will have at least one copy of somewhere. But...why use that when you can use ISPF browse or view or edit?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Can you invoke it from the ISPF command line?

Because when i have to change the input fields value often in the run jcl, i need to give start 1.f.instead of that i want a rexx macro to open the input file in edit mode by invoking filemaster plus when my cursor position points to the input file.

How do you know it was using Rexx? It is just a command and could have been written in any of the ISPF aware languages and could well have been supplied by the publishers of Filemaster

Hello,

What have you tried? What happens?

Posting a trace of the rexx you tried may help.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
