Just make sure that the keylist you are using has F7 & F8 activated. If not, then activate them (by the normal means).
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

You need to describe what environment you are in. And how is the rexx program getting executed.

Same problem for me.
PF1 works with .HELP={tutorpanel}
PF3 works after adding )PANEL at the beginning of each panel
but PF7 PF8 don't work in the scrolling panels
How can I activate them ?

Are your panels scrollable? They'll be scrollable if they contain a )Model statement and are tied into an ISPF Table, or if they contain a scrollable Dynamic Area.

You cannot capture PF keys through pure Rexx; as the other sempai posting in this thread imply, you must use ISPF services.

Show your panel definition. And show use your PF keys.

Thank you for your help. Today I have found my solution, by adding a ispf model at the beginning of my panels, and it works !
)PANEL KEYLIST(ISRSAB,ISR)
Now PF1 for help, PF3 for end, PF7 and PF8 for scrolling on ispf tables, that's what I needed !
Sorry if my englih is not so good, I am french and a beginner in ispf
Bye
