How to pass the REXX screen input to JCL

Postby jyprasanna » Wed Jan 11, 2012 12:02 pm


I have a requirement. Need to pass the input from REXX screen to JCL member and save the member.

Detailed Requirement is I need to get 2 Input file names from User to be passed to a JCL. I have designed a REXX screen to get input from user and when i try to pass to jcl member i am not able to succeed. I dont want job to be submitted, just place the values at SYSIN where i have given as SYSIN = &INPUT1,DISP=SHR

Kindly help me on this.

Your detailed requirement is still very vague. You need to be very much more specific. How do you plan on transfering the data to the JCL - perhaps you want to generate the JCL from your Rexx.

First of all, please get the terminology correct. There is NO SUCH BEAST as a REXX panel. I am sure that you mean ISPF panel.

Saying that something doesn't work is about as useful as saying nothing.

Why does it not work .............
any messages and codes issued
have you processed the REXX using trace options
post your REXX code to allow us to see it, if relevant the ISPF panel and FT code also
