I want to view a file using copybook/layout through rexx.

I know copybook is a cobol-term. But is it possible to create a rexx tool which would do the above mentioned functionality?

Hello,

Pretty much anything is possible if you have enough system knowledge and technical skill (tso/ispf/rexx/assembler/etc).

There are products on the market that do what you describe, so it must be possible icon_wink.gif

As they are already available very, very few organizastions will fund developing this type of utility internally (it is not a small amount of work) and would rather use their technical resources on "real" work. If a case can be made for these utilities, they are leased/purchased.

If you use the forum SEARCH, you will find several similar topics.
