Hi All,

I have a macro in a PDS as say mem1 and then I have another macro in mem2. I want to call mem1 in mem2. Is there a way to do this?

Could you please help me out with this?

Thanks,
Hariharan

I got this.

I did a ADDRESS TSO "%<mem1>" and it worked.

You can also use the rexx CALL instruction:
Code:
call test23(myparm1) 


or as an external function:
Code:
a = test23(myparm1)


I am not sure, but there might be some minor performance differences from using Address TSO. Minor performance differences add up if you are doing something repetitively.

Use the member name.

I believe you were talking about a macro.

As far as I know, the only way the invoke an ISPF Edit Macro within ISPF, is issuing the EDIT/VIEW service with the MACRO keyword.

The method to invoke an ISPF Edit Macro within an EDIT/VIEW session is the ISREDIT host command.
