Hello friends,

I have a REXX code wherein I am using TSO as well as ISPF services. I need to run this job in batch mode using IKJEFT01. However, additional libraries needs to be specified for ISPF services to work.

Is there any job or command or any log, where I can check the ISPF libraries specific to my system? Or can someone direct me to right path?


Thanks in advance.

Andy.

Use TSO ISRDDN to see which ISP* libraries are being used.

Typing TSO ISRDDN on command line gives you detail about all ISP* libraries which you can then use for batch execution of ISPF REXX

But my system can not recognize this command. The information "COMMAND ISRDDN NOT FOUND".

I did nothing. Just log on tso and try this command.
I have tried both 'tso isrddn' and 'isrddn'

Anuj,

it is possible that some sites limit the use of ISRDDN. I have worked at one site where the sysprogs deemed that only they should be afforded the delights of ISRDDN.

Hello,

You might look into the Hercules system - mainframe for your pc. . . icon_smile.gif

If you get ""COMMAND ISRDDN NOT FOUND"." i suspect your logon procedure does not have the library included. If you received a security error, it is "found" but you don't have permission.

It may be worth asking if you may have permission. I've been more places that restrict usage than permit use. . .

it could be removed from the ISPF libraries but it is in the standard libraries. Try also the command DDLIST (without the TSO prefix) since that is an alias to ISRDDN in the ISPF command table. Still, you can always use that BATCHPDF program that does all the work for you and does not rely on any external programs to get ddnames.

I am not sure I understand the difference.

Yes. 'DDLIST' works. I can see the libs. Thanks MBabu.
And I will try ISRDDN on my Hercules. Thanks Moderator, too.

Just that batchpdf does not call anything other that the ISPF services that are guaranteed to be there and that it satisfies the original requirement to create JCL that will run ISPF services.
