Not sure this will work, but I think just try to run it. But have a ON ERROR or maybe an ON SYNTAX routine setup before calling rxvsam.

the best thing would be to ask Your support...

even if it is installed it might not be for general use

RXVSAM, written and supported by Mark Winges, can be found in file 268 of the CBT Tape. There is a read-only VSAM function package, also called RXVSAM, in the VSAM section of the Xephon archives.

years ago to get around the problem of no direct rexx read of a vsam file,
I wrote a cobol module that was called by the rexx module.
Passalong area was actually via VGET and VPUT both in the rexx script and the COBOL module.

I have used REXX to read/update a KSDS file using keys to retrieve and replace records.
