You're asking how to write a basic file I/O routine in REXX? Again, like your last topic, more details please. Give us an example of the code you've already done and some indication of where you're stuck.

Hello,

You should also consider showing what your input is and what you want as output from that input.
Hope this helps,

Hi,

To be more precise and clear, my requirement is as follows:

My input file (PS) is in the below given format:

delivery-------- delivery file --------- tape no.
kk1 --------ttuu.jjuu.file1.mar09---- 15433
kk1 --------ttuu.jjuu.file2.mar09---- 15434,45668
bb1 --------ttuu.jjuu.file3.mar09---- 15445

similarly it contains multiple records (more than 100)

secondly, i have a JCL wherein i am copying these delivery files to some other datasets. for copying these delivery files i am giving the tape no. in the JCL for each delivery file.

As this activity happens 4 days in a week. so it is quite tedious job to copy the tape numbers every time from the input file and paste it in the jcl for each delivery file.

can u please suggest if this can be done using REXX in a more simpler way?

Thanks.

Looking at the description of the process, if this were me, I think I'd use a liberal amount of INCLUDE statements throughout the JCL instead of constantly changing or re-writing the JCL.

Hi Mr Spock,

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. But the tape no.'s are different every time so i think we will have to change the tape no.'s in the JCL every time. please let me know if am wrong.

Also, can u please tell me how to use include statements in JCL for this process.
