The same way you would using COBOL or Assembler or PL/I or any other language using the basic rules of QSAM data processing. Nothing different if it's REXX.

The best way that I know of to delete a specific line from a PDS member or PS dataset is to use an editor.

Surprisingly, you can use the edit command DELETE from an Edit-Macro written in REXX.
