Hi,

Can anyone tell me the equivalent of this part of code to be coded in REXX.

//UPDTE1 EXEC PGM=CSUTLR,
// PARM=(VSSCOPY,0EQ,0100)


I tried "CALL *(CSUTLR) VSSCOPY,0EQ,0100" , but did not work...

Did you try

"CALL *(CSUTLR) 'VSSCOPY,0EQ,0100'"

Hmm...

I wonder if the program expects to see the parentheses:

"CALL *(CSUTLR) '(VSSCOPY,0EQ,0100)'"

In REXX, I prefer using ADDRESS ISPEXEC "SELECT PGM(program) PARM(parameters)"

O.

To call a COBOL program from REXX, I usualy use the same as Ofer:
ADDRESS ISPEXEC "SELECT PGM(program) PARM(parameters)"

However, if I want to execute another REXX I use:
CALL 'REXXPGM'(parm1 parm2)
or, if the called rexx returns a value:
resp = 'REXXPGM'(parm1 parm2)
