Hi,
I have written a rexx utility which executes a job. The job uses a input file. I want put a check in my rexx utility to see if the input file is catalogued before submitting the job.
I used the following code snippet for the same purpose
IF (SYSDSN("'" || INPFILE || "'") /= 'OK') THEN
DO
DISP1 = 'INPT FILE SPECIFIED IS NOT CATLG'
END

The problem with the above code is it returns the error message when the input file is in tape. I want the message to be displayed only when the file is not catalogued.
If some one has worked out on a similar problem could you please help me out.

Thanks.

How about LISTDSI?

In addition, you can use ISPF services like LMDLIST etc.
