Dears,

Can any one suggest me how we can handle the below problem.

My requirement :

I need to read a file in rexx and inside that file I need increment the count by 1.

When I am calling this rexx by the Jobs which are running parralely at same time I am facing a problem that the file is already inuse.

My rexx Pgm:

Address tso "alloc da('"inp_file"') f(indd1) shr"
if rc /= 0 then do
say 'Error in allocating the file' inp_file
return_code = 8
call exit_routine
end
Address tso "execio * diskr indd1 (finis stem" stmnm"."
if rc /= 0 then do
say 'Error in reading the file' inp_file
return_code = 8
call exit_routine
end
Address tso "execio 0 diskr indd1 (finis"
Address tso "free f(indd1)"

Why would you want to update a file that is being used in parallel by other programs?

Garry.

My reguirement is,

If Jcl calls this rexx program then I need to increment the count by one. So that I can get a count that how many times the rexx program is used in a day.

Thanks,
Chipu

You need to be using DISP=OLD processing with the dataset allocation in the JCL, not in the EXEC.

I would like to know the important reason why you would need to know how many times a certain REXX is invoked daily.

there is something that the TS wants to hide/is not telling ...

no way that the posted rexx snippet could cause an OLD disposition

maybe the script is failing because somebody else has the dataset in OLD
