Hello,

Look at this previous topic:
http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=38024

EXCI may do what you want.

IBM used to offer a free support pac "CSF1", which used EXCI to open/close files from Batch. Here's the original link, but unfortunately, it resolves as a "Page Cannot be Displayed". However, they may have changed the link (URL) and it's probably still available, although you may have to dig for it -

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/htp/...dual/cs1f.html

Have you considered issuing JES Modify (CEMT) commands, from -

IEFBR14, SDSF, SYSVIEW, etc.

The problem you'd have using JES modify is that a return-code is not issued after the CEMT has been completed, which will leave you guessing.

Regards,

CS1F CICS Batch services utilities (withdrawn). For similar function, you can use CICS Batch Application Control (BAC) 18Jun99 18Jun99

Enrico,

I tried the link after pasting it and it took me to other site than IBM. Thank you for fixing it.

The BatchCICS-Connect software allows for success testing
