What do you mean by "the rexx program will call 3 panels ..."? How? From where? What kind of panels? How will these "panels" receive input or display output?

Bear in mind that you're talking about a batch job running on an initiator in a JES address space.

If you are expecting the batch job to communicate with your TSO session you will be bitterly disappointed.

Since a batch job is running independent of users and terminals, just exactly where is the input coming from?

A batch job means there is no user -- no way for a user to enter input into a panel -- no terminal to display the panel -- nothing of the sort. You either need to completely redesign your process to not use panels and user input, or give up the idea as impossible. Your choice.

Hello,

Depending on what exactly is the requirement, you could use a panel to receive input from a user and then submit a batch job containing the user entries.

Once submitted, there would be no more interaction with the rexx code. . . Depending on the function of the batch job, the results of that process could be inserted into some database (where the user could query it), printed back to the user's network printer, or stored in a qsam file that could be downloaded.
Hope this helps,

Hello,

What you have understood from the requirement is perfectly correct.

I have coded a rexx program for this and it is working fine.Now I need a JCL to run this rexx code as batch job.

Hello,

You cannot do this as a single process. . .

You would need to run the "screen" process online to "talk" with the user and then submit the batch portion.

You cannot interact with a TSO online session via JCL. . .
Hope this helps,
