Hello,

Are you asking about mainframe rexx or rexx on a pc or ?

The mainframe does not know there is a mouse. . .

The version of rexx we had on pc's long ago was also text based and did not use the mouse. It ran in windows, but was text based for compatability with the mainframe and other character-based environments.

Hello,

The mainframe does not recognize the mouse for copy/paste operations. . . These are functions done on the desktop by the Windows environment and the code running in windows. It just happens that the windows application is the 3270 terminal emulator that happens to be connected to the mainframe. The mainframe does not participate in the desktop copy/paste.

How to code a command to give it in the line number , in rexx to make it to do the user requested operation.

Eg.
****** *****************************

000002 ADDRESS ISREDIT
000003 "MACRO NOPROCESS (LANG,OPT1)"
000004 /*"MACRO"*/
000005 "(DATASET) =DATASET"

Hello,

You need to do what DBZ suggested.

You will probably use those features to meet your requirement.
