IS there any rexx command to read or update a vsam file?
i think the EXECIO command is returning an error message while reading a vsam file.
i need the rexx commands related to vsam updation,delete,write.

Thanks!!

The only way to satisfy Your need is to use a REXX external function package...
If I remember correctly there should be something on this subject in the
CBT mods or in the XEPHON free downloads( articles older than two/three years)

As a quick and dirty alternative You might repro to a PS file,
process the the PS file by creating a new file,
repro back to VSAM... clumsy but it works

regards

The way that I've managed in the past within the REXX EXEC is to REPRO the required record out of the VSAM file into a work dataset, perform the updates required with REXX and then REPRO REPLACE the record back.

Messy, but it does work.
