I have made following Rexx routine for 3.14 search utility

/*REXX CODE TO DO SEARCH FROM PDS */
ARG ABC
ADDRESS ISPEXEC CONTROL ERRORS RETURN
ADDRESS ISPEXEC
"VIEW DATASET('abc.JCLLIB(SRCH) MACRO(CH1)')"

MACRO CH1

ISREDIT MACRO(ABC)
ISREDIT CHANGE 'XXXXX' &ABC

abc.JCLLIB(SRCH) contains JCL for batch search utility where search string is coded like " SRCHFOR 'XXXXX' "

My Rexx routine opens the JCL in view mode but cannot replace 'XXXXX' with the argument received. Please tell me how I can do that. I tried with ISREDIT macro but not able to do.

Are you sure that the code you posted is right?

Shouldn't it look more like this:

*REXX CODE TO DO SEARCH FROM PDS */
ARG ABC
ADDRESS ISPEXEC CONTROL ERRORS RETURN
ADDRESS ISPEXEC
"VPUT ABC"
"VIEW DATASET('abc.JCLLIB(SRCH)') MACRO(CH1)"

MACRO CH1

ISREDIT MACRO
VGET ABC
ISREDIT CHANGE 'XXXXX' &ABC

or simply change
Code:
"VIEW DATASET('abc.JCLLIB(SRCH)') MACRO(CH1)"

to
Code:
"VIEW DATASET('abc.JCLLIB(SRCH)') MACRO(CH1) PARM(&ABC)"

Aw, jeez, now that's embarrassing. icon_redface.gif

When I was double-checking the BROWSE syntax, I used the ISPF BROWSE model as a reference, and I swear that the model doesn't show the PARM parameter. I'll have to double-check it when I can.
