Hi,

I am trying to execute a REXX program in batch mode.
When i submitted the JCL i got MAXCC=990, which means 'BDISPMAX exceeded ERROR'.
I increased the range of BDISPMAX but now its giving S322 error.


ISPSTART CMD(%TEMPNAME) NEWAPPL(ISR)BDISPMAX(99999)


Can somebody help to resolve the same?

Thanks,
Marina.

Yeah, it's in line 301 of your REXX code.

Unless we have the slightest idea of what you are trying to do, the way you are trying to do it, the above answer is about as good as it gets.

What does your program do,
Have you used TRACE to see what happens where

read expat's next three lines. Attempt to take the post in context.

essentially, you told us: I have a problem with REXX.
and now you want a solution.
based on the info you provided us,
telling you that line 301 in your rexx script is the problem,
is as close as we can get.......................................

Below is my REXX program. It works perfectly fine when not run as a batch program.
There is no looping.
Any idea what could be the problem when i am trying to run the same in batch?

Code:

/*REXX*/                                                       
FILEIN = G68462.RULES.FILE

DSNAME = G68462.JOB.JCL
                                                               
/*CHECK IF THE LIBRARY EXISTS OR NOT*/

    DO                                                         
       "ISPEXEC LIBDEF ISPFILE DATASET ID('"DSNAME"')"

Below is the MACRO code:-
It is for adding the job card.

Code:

ADDRESS ISREDIT "MACRO"                                               
IF RC  \=0 THEN EXIT                                                   
                                                                       
/* ADD THE JOB CARD   */                                               
DROP REC.                                                             
R = "//THD95Q1A JOB (02144T,02007211),TEST,CLASS=A,PRTY=4,MSGCLASS=X,";
REC.1 = R                                                             
REC.2 = "//         NOTIFY="||USERID()                                 
REC.0 = 2                                                             
                                                                       
DO I = 1 TO REC.0 ;                                                   
   SAY REC.I                                                           
   ADDRESS ISREDIT 'LINE_AFTER' I-1 '= "'REC.I'"' ;                   
END;

Marina.

Have you tried running it again - use a lower number for BDISPMAX(99999) to save time, maybe 999 and using TRACE R

And look through the trace and see what is happening where.

From a first glance I can see nothing glaringly obvious, so again suggest that you trace this.

Not sure what you mean by
fine', but you should start from TSO READY and then be back to TSO READY afterwards when you test it.

If it is in batch, you need to code your program and macro so that no panels are displayed. Afterall, you cannot display a panel in batch.

Make sure your edit macro ends the editor without displaying.

I have had a play with TRACE on your code and found that the error is somewhere inside the macro. Couldn't be asked to look further because ....

Why on earth you need a macro to insert a jobcard when you are already using file tailoring is a mystery to me. I changed your code to put the jobcard in first and then add the other bits after. Works like a dream.

Code:

"EXECIO * DISKR INDSET ( STEM  STEMNAM. "
IF STEMNAM.0 > 0 THEN DO         
  "ISPEXEC FTOPEN"               
  "ISPEXEC FTINCL JOBCARD"       
  DO AA = 1 TO STEMNAM.0         
    PARSE VAR REC.I JOBNAME TIME 
    JNAME= STRIP(JOBNAME)         
    "ISPEXEC FTINCL JOBSKL"       
  END                             
  "ISPEXEC FTCLOSE NAME(REXXJCL)"
END

How did you determine that the 990 return code meant a BDISPMAX error?

Your macro needs to exit the editor . Use the ISREDIT END command. Otherwise you continue to sit in the editor, ISPF presses the virtual enter key 100000 times and ... BDISPMAX exceeded.

The requirement that i have is to create a JCL which has a few job steps corresponding to the job names passed to it.
The job card needs to appear only once.
You cant insert the job card first as the Skeleton JCL will start fresh everytime and the job card gets overwritten.
Which is why i included it at the end.

Correct me if i am wrong.

Thanks,
Marina.

Hey expat,

Your solution worked, i removed the MACRO and followed your method.
It works perfectly fine.

Thanks a lot.

Marina.

And you had doubts icon_cry.gif

If you do need a macro to insert things into a dataset when not using file tailoring, I find it is far easier to keep the inserts in a seperate library and insert the whole member in one hit. It keeps it a whole lot cleaner than generating the JCL in the REXX code, and means that not only can the same member be used anywhere else that I want, but if it needs to be changed it only needs to be changed once.

This is the macro that I use to insert a jobcard at the top of a JCL stream.
Code:

"ISREDIT MACRO"
"ISREDIT COPY 'My ISPSLIB library(JOBCARD)' AFTER "0
"ISREDIT END"

I know this is more than 2 year old post but wanted to Thank MBabu.

I was facing similar problem (ISPP330 BDISPMAX exceeded) while executing an ISPF Edit Macro program.

Problem was solved when I added ISREDIT END at end of my MACRO.

THANK YOU MBABU.
