View and update ISPF profile table

Postby mymainframe » Thu Jun 25, 2015 9:13 pm

Hi,

How can I view and update ISPF profile tables using REXX.

I am developing a REXX tool, where I need to use File-AID ISPF profile table to view and update.

Thanks.

Use ISPF table services to process the table. Read the ISPF Services manual for the following topics:
    TBOPEN
    TBQUERY
    TBTOP
    TBSKIP
    TBMOD
    TBCLOSE
    LIBDEF

I was trying to open ISPF tables using 3.16 option. Instead of opening table, its showing as below.


__*** Extension variables only ***


It was working fine for the table which I create in my PDS.

Can someone explain why ISPF table is not opening.

Thanks.

Not without seeing your entire table-handling code.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

This is a help forum, not a 'do it for me' forum.

You can get sample code by using the editor. Issue this command:
MODEL TBOPEN



Click here are some example programs http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Example+of+ISPF+table+processing+program#

Perhaps the table only has extension variables only! You can still type an E in the input field to see the extension variables.

Hi Pedro,

I can see extension variables. Can I edit/change these variables using REXX.

Thanks.
