Hi,

I need to call a cobol program from a rexx program. I tried the option ADDRESS LINKPGM 'PGM-NAME' but its not working. When i try to the rexx it errors

1. REXX code is in the PDS ABC.REXX
2. COBOL code is in the PDS ABC.COBOL
3. COBOL LOAD module is in the PDS ABC.LOAD

Please suggest me if there is any way to do it.

Can you please provide me the complete REXX code for this.

How about?:
Code:
Address TSO "CALL 'ABC.LOAD(PGM-NAME)' "

You can try LIBDEF ISPLLIB followed by SELECT PGM.

I have found that Address LINKMVS always works well when the exec is running in a non-TSO/E address space:
Code:

/* REXX */
Address LINKMVS "MYPROG PARAMETERS"

Address TSO "CALL 'ABC.LOAD(PGM-NAME)' "
