i have written code in rexx to read contents of a file from 1 to 38 character and that field to be name of datset , i want to open that dataset to read all the members which are inside that and write in output file.

i am not getting what to do after this
Code:

/*REXX*/                                                       
"EXECIO * DISKR INDD (FINIS STEM SRC."                               
DO CNT = 1 TO SRC.0                                                     
  PARSE VAR SRC.CNT 5 FIRST 8 13 SECOND 38 THIRD                 
  SAY THIRD           
END
EXIT

So the variable "THIRD" contains the name of a PDS? And then you say you want to "read all the members which are inside that and write in output file". How do you plan to determine what all the member names are?

Your intention is not clear, please specify your question clearly.

to list the members in the dataset u can use the listds command
but y u r splitting the dataset name to somany things u can take the first 38 characters and store it in a variable name and then using the syntax

"listds ('"var"') members"

then proceed
