RC(-3) In Libdef

Postby eprasad629 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 1:21 pm

Hi All,

Good Day!!

I'm having a concern while issuing LIBDEF.

I have a program that generates an automated JCL. Whenever I run the program, I see the JCL constructed succesfully. However when I fabricate my program into JCL and submit it, I'm getting a RC (-3). The same error being thrown for ‘ftincl’ command too.

Since it doesn't throw 'Command Not Found', it doesn't seem to be a wrong addressing problem.
Thanks & Regards,

Praelay

I disagree. It sure appears that you're attempting to use ISPF Services without ISPF being active.

Or perhaps without the appropriate ISPF libraries being allocated in your batch job

However, if you post the error codes and messages issued it may help us to help you.

Hi MrSpock/Expat,

Thanks a lot for your analysis.

However, it seems we cannot include ISPF services in a rexx exec when it runs through a JCL.

I tried with the QUEUE Option instead of FTINCL and this has worked out.

Once again thanking you for your investigation on this.
Thanks & Regards,

Oh....... I have been doing this for years.

type TSO ISRDDN on the command line, and see the librarie allocated to your ISPF session in foreground.
Now all you need to do is to include the majors, ISPPLIB, ISPSLIB, ISPMLIB, ISPTLIB in your batch job.
