ISPF Custom Line Edit macros do not work anymore

Postby harisukumaran » Thu Jun 27, 2024 4:42 am

I used to be able to use the old IBM downloadable LMAC binary module to run custom line macros
But that does not apparently work under ISPF 8.1
I followed all the instructions in: ... le-support
I copied the sample rexx to the SYSPROC library
setup the LINECMD table etc.
EDIT                 ISPF EDIT Line Command Table  LINECMD
Command ===>                                              
    User     MACRO    Program  Block    Multi    Dest      
    Command           Macro    format   line     Used      
    ----+--- ----+--- ----+--- ----+--- ----+--- ----+---  
    CE       POSLINE  N        Y        Y        Y        
    RV       POSLINE  N        Y        Y        Y        
    LEF      POSLINE  N        Y        Y        Y        
    RIT      POSLINE  N        Y        Y        Y        
    XB       $XB      N        N        N        N    

But I get: "Command not recognized" when i try to run any of the commands in sample "POSLINE" rexx while editing a dataset.
Do i need to save this LINECMD table name in any of the system variables ?
I have no idea what I am doing wrong.
Could someone please help ?
