How do you call the REXX from the COBOL?

We can suppose that the REXX routine is calling the COBOL program and wants to get a result from it.

In that case, in the COBOL program, you can issue a CALL 'ISPLINK' to execute an ISPF VDEFINE and then a VPUT command.
The REXX routine can then retrieve the value using VGET.

Unfortunately I don't have a running example at hand, so you'll have to search the documentation.

If this is the case, he can also use one of the TSO/E REXX service routines, which are documented in the fina manual.
