Using REXX I want to position cursor on command line in an ISPF panel by sending <HOME> key to the panel. ALso to further navigate on the ISPF panel I want to send <TAB> keys to the panel.
What would be the syntax in REXX for these ??

I did not completely understand your reqt and my suggestion might be wrong.

As far as i know, to navigate on the ISPF panels (to move from one field to other) you don't have to code anything as it automatically happens.

Please refer to the attachment.
This is the ISPF panel for displaying elements in ENDEVOR.
Now once I am here on this panel, using REXX code I want to send <TAB> keys to ISPF panel to select ENVIRONMENT, SYSTEM, SUBSYSTEM, TYPE etc as I desire.

You might not like it, but it just cannot be done,
field navigation in a panel is &man driven
as far as host programming is concerned
- review your understanding of 3270 architecture

You might try with some 3270 emulator macro capability

It still not clear what you want:

What do you mean by 'select'?

Hello,

If you want the cursor to move from field to field simply program your code to re-position the cursor to the next field each time the panel is re-displayed.

Possibly i do not understand the problem. . .
