Listing selected members of a PDS through REXX

Postby ssudhanshu » Tue Nov 25, 2014 12:54 pm

I'm having trouble in a specific request. I've to search a string in a PDS and list all the members in which the string is found to an output file. The area where I am stuck is to execute SRCHFOR and then listing the same in an output file. How to go with it?

what does the manual tell about running SRCHFOR in batch ?

if the SRCHFOR output does not fit Your taste You can always route it to a dataset
and after that process the same whit rexx/<SORT> to produce the report in the needed/wanted format
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

If you want to do it in foreground then take a note of the temporary dataset name holding the results that is being displayed, split screen, go into edit with a new dsn and copy the temporary dataset into the new dataset. Save. Done.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
