How do you do that without REXX?

For that we go to fileman or fileaid in TSO and open it in View or Edit mode.

Hello,

You may get more usable replies if you explain what you are trying to accomplish. . . .

If you launch FileAid via some rexx code, you will still have launched FileAid. . . icon_confused.gif

I am making a REXX tool. I am fetching the Physical Name of DSN.
eg. A='"PRD.KSDS.TEST"'

If now I use command LISTDSI(A), I can have the Organization of the file.

In case if SYSDSORG variable has a value of 'VS', I want to open the file in Fileaid.

It seems strange to develop a tool which invokes a proprietary tool? Have you considered the freely-available RXVSAM interface? This allows REXX applications access VSAM files. Google RXVSAM for more information.

in a properly customized ISPF environment from a 3.4 screen

using a B ( browse command ) in front of any dataset will invoke the appropriate program for the function requested

for vsam browse You could use ditto or IBM filemanager if installed
Looking at the appropriate ISPF and fileaid docs You should be able to make
fileaid the default browse application for vsam dataset
