Executing QMF's table editor through REXX

Postby rohit_2219 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 4:16 pm

I searched through the forum But I could not find any Satisfactory reply for this.
My requirement is to perform a set of validatins in rexx and then call QMF's table editor service through rexx.
The following table editor parameters have to be passed through rexx too.
1) Table name 2) CHANGE/ADD parameter.
Is it possible to do this?If yes,how can I do this?
If QMF cannot be invoked through REXX,then can we Execote complex Rexx macros involving ISPF panels and SQL calls through QMF?
I have a Licence for QMF. is there any licence or performance issue if I do this?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

It is possible to issue SQL from REXX. Suggest you talk with your dba or system support people for specifics for your system. I'm not aware of REXX invoking QMF (while in QMF, a REXX exec could be executed, but that is not the same if i understand).

Licensing should not be a problem if there is a qmf license. Performance would depend on the SQL being run.
Hope this helps,
