Hi All,

I need help, Can someone tell me how can I execute ISPF command and capture Result using REXX?

E.g.

I want to capture result of ISPF command
s.da;pre IND* in a file.

Any pointers are welcome.

Thanks and Regards
Chani

Hi,
You can check out the OUTTRAP command in REXX to trap the output of an ISPF command into a variable:
Ex:
x = OUTTRAP('MYVAR.')
ADDRESS TSO "DEL DT.LIST"
x = OUTTRAP("OFF")

The meesage "<userid>.dt.list was deleted" will not be displayed on the ISPF screen and will be available in the stem variable 'MYVAR'.

Hope this helps,
Ranjit
