HI all,

i have a small problem at hand.
i need to write a small REXX ISPF EDIT macro which recieves some value from the rexx tool and has to write it to a member of PDS.

i am using the command "line_before 1 = myvar"

but it throws an error saying
Invalid line number
Relative line number specified in "LINE_BEF" command does not exit.

how do i determine the line number???

thanks

i am getting the following error while writing into a member of PDS.. Any suggestions?

******************************************************************************
* *
* Command in error . : LINE_BEFORE 1 = DATALINE (V1) *

You use the LINENUM operand to determine line numbers.

Don't know how you're getting that message but this works for me:

Code:
/* REXX  */                         
isredit "macro"                     
myvar = "Hello Sailor"             
isredit  "line_before 1 = (myvar)" 


The variable name needs to be in brackets or it will print the variable name instead of its contents.
