Executing multiple ISREDIT macros on particular condition.

Postby chinkump » Tue May 07, 2013 12:19 pm

Hi,

I have coded multiple ISREDIT command macros which needs to be run one after another. I am executing the macros by using the command below.
"ISPEXEC EDIT DATASET('TEST.TEST.PDS(TEST1)') MACRO(SF)"

Here I am executing the marco SF. Similar to this I have coded multiple macros as per requirement.Now I want to integrate all the mcros to a single macro based on the condition.

Lets say for example macro are SF,SG,SK,SL.
Now I want to execute then in sequence and if any of the macro fails then prceding macros should not be executed and it should exit. Suppose SF macro checks for the jobcard if it is correct then only macro SG will be executed orelse the whole macro should exit without executing further(no execution of SG,SK,SL macros).

Can anybody suggest how to achieve this condition in macros.

Thanks,
Chinkump

One solution would be to let the macros communicate with the driver program by ISPF variables in the pool.
Each macro should set the variabel EXITRC to a predefined value and VPUT it into the ISPF variable pool when processing is done.
So you can decide if you want to continue with the next macro or terminate the whole process.
macros = 'SF SG SK SL'
exitrc = 0
do i = 1 by 1 to words(macros) until exitrc <> 0
   mac = word(macros,i)
   "ISPEXEC EDIT DATASET('TEST.TEST.PDS(TEST1)') MACRO("mac")"
   "ISPEXEC VGET EXITRC"
end

Many thanx in advance.

At the end of each macro, include the line
address ispexec "VPUT EXITRC"

Read up on the ISPF variable (V*) services.
