I haven't opened the file with
ADDRESS ISPEXEC "EDIT DATASET('"FILE"') MACRO("MACRO1")"

since you managed to OPEN and WRITE to the file,
address the same service/application and CLOSE and FREE the file.

So that was not true???

Invoke another clist which closes the dataset. Look at the CLIST manual and read about the CLOSFILE instruction.

You might be able to do it from rexx using EXECIO too.
