Edit Macro Stops after VIEW

Postby newtomframe » Tue Aug 05, 2014 7:17 am

Hello,
Please bear with me. I am trying to do the following. In one dataset (the original), execute a macro to view a dataset (the same or different dataset as the original) and execute ISREDIT macro commands on the newly viewed dataset. This is possible if the subsequent steps are set into an initial macro. However, I would like to avoid using an initial macro because of the limitations of initial macro (i.e. DISPLAY_LINES). Is there a way to execute steps in the new view without having to execute a second macro? Thanks in advance.

/* REXX */
ISREDIT "MACRO"
ISREDIT "(MEM) = "MEMBER
ISREDIT "VIEW "MEM
ISREDIT "DOWN 4" /* THIS DOES NOT EXECUTE SUCCESSFULLY */

Simple answer, and not what you want to hear: No.
