After playing with this for longer than is probably justified, the best option seems to be to have my REXX call a CLIST to show the prompt and get the value, then have the CLIST call a REXX program to PUSH the value into the stack so that the original REXX and PULL it and finally get the value. All options seem rather cumbersome, and perhaps being that invisible to the user as a change is not worth the trouble, but the question and pursing a solution has been interesting. I thank one and all for the suggestions.

And so now I see another limitation anyway. The string I pass to the CLIST for the prompt cannot contain any spaces, or it gets interpreted as multiple arguments.
