Hello,

Running this:
//TSO1    EXEC PGM=IKJEFT1B,DYNAMNBR=20                       
//SYSEXEC  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=MYDUMB.TEST.REXXLIB       
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                       
//SYSOU1   DD SYSOUT=*                                       
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*                                       
//SYSTSIN  DD *                                               
SETRC 17                                                     
/*   


The SETRC REXX code:
/* REXX */   
RETURN ARG(1)


Produces this:
IEF236I ALLOC. FOR MYREXXRC TSO1                                 
IGD103I SMS ALLOCATED TO DDNAME SYSEXEC                         
IEF237I JES2 ALLOCATED TO SYSPRINT                               
IEF237I JES2 ALLOCATED TO SYSOU1                                 
IEF237I JES2 ALLOCATED TO SYSTSPRT                               
IEF237I JES2 ALLOCATED TO SYSTSIN                               
IEF237I 80A2 ALLOCATED TO SYS00001                               
IEF285I   SYS1.UADS                                    KEPT     
IEF285I   VOL SER NOS= C1101B.                                   
IEF142I MYREXXRC TSO1 - STEP WAS EXECUTED - COND CODE 0017   


Maybe incorporating this will do what you want. . .
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
