I need help in reading an ISPF table from ISPTLIB library and write to a sequential dataset in a readable format.

Could anyone please help me on this?

Go to the REXX / CLIST forum and go to the sticky at the top of the topic list - reference material.

That will link you to all of the manuals that you will need to do this.

I have not tried anything. As I mentioned I am new to REXX. I have a REXX table and I need to use that as input to SAS program. So I want to convert it to a SAS readable format.

Actually, you have an ISPF table. Please learn to use the correct terminology in your questions so that people really do know what you are talking about.

You're not too familiar with SAS, either, are you? SAS can read anything in any file on the mainframe. As long as you have the format specified correctly, SAS will read the data and allow you to use it.

SAS cannot read since ISPF Table is not in a readable format. I used 3.16 option to export it to a sequential dataset.

Learn SAS before you come up with another such ridiculous statement. I have used SAS to read load modules before so data does not have to be in readable format for SAS to handle it. The SAS examples file has code to read the directory of a PDS directly -- which certainly is not in a readable format.

Are you talking about reading cobol load modules using SAS program? Do you have any sample for that? Your help will be greatly appreciated.
