hi
i would like these set statement:

// SET TRBENVUC=RBT1  
// SET UC = 'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789'  
// SET LC = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789'  
// SET TRBENVLC=TRANSLATE(&TRBENVUC.,&LC.,&UC.)

Write a program in the language of your choice.

JCL is not an appropriate way for what you tried to do, as you found out.

You would have to execute your program in this job to resolve the variable and then submit another job that uses that value.

It looks like the TS is trying to set JCL variables to Rexx statements.

Then why not move it to the "Stupid questions" and be done with it?

because you don't understand, it is not a stupid question. Jes2 runs Clist statements, but apparently not this Rexx one.

JES2 running CLIST statements?

SET statements, in the format that you specified, are JCL statements. SET is also a CList statement. That is different from the JCL SET statement. You cannot mix the two - they belong to two different languages. Rexx doesnot have a SET statement.

I suggest you read about the JCL SET statement and then the clist SET statement.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
