But BLING would only handle the commands that it knows otherwise it would blow out in some manner. If it was nice, just a standard -3 with a message saying command not understood.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hello,

But BLING would only handle the commands that it knows otherwise it would blow out in some manner.
Well, that is what i would expect. . . If an environment is defined with some commands, only those commands should work.

Maybe there is something i am completely missing :?
Hope this helps,

No it is not - it is the command processor which will process the commands which will be DSNREXX if you follow the documentation. You will get a RC=-3 if you put in an invalid environment.

Try
CALL RXSUBCOM "ADD", "FOO", "DSNREXX"

and then send your SQL to ADDRESS FOO.
