Hi,
I use the below rexx code to print the spool output of a particular job to a dataset.

Code:
000001 /* REXX */                                                             
000002 ADDRESS TSO                                                             
000003 JOBNAME = 'TMS047BB'                                                       
000004 JOBID   = '7558'                                                         
000005 DSNAME = USERID()||"SP.OUTPUT"                                         
000007  "OUTPUT "JOBNAME"("JOBID") PRINT("DSNAME") BEGIN HOLD KEEP"


i get the error as " INVALID JOBNAME"

Code:
 INVALID JOBNAME, TMS047BB(7558)                           
 ***                                                       


The job is available in spool. Can anyone tell me why it is not printing the job spool to the dataset?

The format is:

JOBNAME(JOBnnnnn),

so try:

Code:

/* REXX */                                                             
JOBNAME = 'TMS047BB'                                                       
JOBID   = '07558'     
DSNAME = USERID()||".SP.OUTPUT"                                         
"OUTPUT "JOBNAME"(JOB"JOBID") PRINT('"DSNAME"') BEGIN HOLD KEEP"

OK. Well, the code I posted was tested and does work correctly.

How about you post a run-time TRACE of your code, and maybe the results of a TSO STATUS command for the same job you want the OUTPUT for, just so we're all sure that the job really does exist on the held output spool.

i tried the below code with TSO STATUS.
Code:
000001 /* REXX */                                                         
000002    TRACE R                                                         
000003 ADDRESS TSO                                                       
000004 JOBNAME = 'TMS047BB'                                               
000005 JOBID   = '7558'                                                   
000006 DSNAME = USERID()||"SP.OUTPUT"                                     
000007 "STATUS" JOBNAME"(JOB"JOBID")"                                     
000008 "OUTPUT "JOBNAME"(JOB"JOBID") PRINT("DSNAME") BEGIN HOLD KEEP"     


the trace results are
Code:
      3 *-* ADDRESS TSO                                                         
      4 *-* JOBNAME = 'TMS047BB'                                               
        >>>   "TMS047BB"                                                       
      5 *-* JOBID   = '7558'                                                   
        >>>   "7558"                                                           
      6 *-* DSNAME = USERID()||"SP.OUTPUT"                                     
        >>>   "TMS047SP.OUTPUT"                                                 
      7 *-* "STATUS" JOBNAME"(JOB"JOBID")"                                     
        >>>   "STATUS TMS047BB(JOB7558)"                                       
 JOB TMS047BB(JOB07558) ON OUTPUT QUEUE                                         
      8 *-* "OUTPUT "JOBNAME"(JOB"JOBID") PRINT("DSNAME") BEGIN HOLD KEEP"     
        >>>   "OUTPUT TMS047BB(JOB7558) PRINT(TMS047SP.OUTPUT) BEGIN HOLD KEEP"
  ***

It still says 'Command is not a macro". Output dataset is not getting printed with data.
is there anything like we can't access SDSF via REXX like normal Rexx routines?

I sounds like you are issuing your command from the editor command line. And the message is correct... it is not an editor macro. I think you just need to add "Address ISREDIT 'MACRO' " to make it an editor macro.

Please rephrase your question... it is not clear what you are asking.

My question here is, can we access SDSF using Rexx in view/edit command lines? are we able to run edit macros to access SDSF only in SDSF panel?

You should be able to use the rexx api of SDSF to get job output, and do it outside of SDSF panels. See IBM manual SG24-7419-00
