In this example, my rexx program edits a file (full name in var dsn_member) and runs the MYMACRO macro.
Values are passed with the PARM option:
dsn_member = 'HLQ.SPF.COBOL('member')'
MyParms = '7 14 A'
Address ISPEXEC "EDIT DATASET('"dsn_member"') MACRO(MYMACRO) PARM(MyParms)"
In the macro:
Address ISREDIT "MACRO (ParmFROM ParmTO ParmSEQ)"
In this example, ParmFROM contains 7, ParmTO = 14 and ParmSEQ = 'A'
In order for your rexx program to continue without displaying the edited member, the macro should finish with SAVE;END or a CANCEL;END.
The macro can search and/or modify the edited file. For this use only commands. ISPF Edit and Edit Macro

Another repetitive topic that seems like it's been beaten to death.
It's quite plainly shown when you do a copy of one of the ISPF EDIT models into your code:
'EDIT DATASET('dsname') VOLUME('serial') PASSWORD('pswd') ',
'PANEL('panel-id') MACRO('mac-name') PROFILE('prof-name')',
'PROFILE('prof-name') FORMAT('form-nam') MIXED(NO) ',
'CONFIRM(YES) WS(NO) WRAP ',
'EDIT DATAID('data-id') MEMBER('mbr-name') PANEL('panel-id') ',
'MACRO('mac-name') PROFILE('prof-name') FORMAT('form-nam')',
'MIXED(NO) CONFIRM(YES) ',
'WS(NO) WRAP PRESERVE ',
mac-name - Optional, name of the initial macro to be executed
after the data is read.
parmvar - Optional, name of a variable containing parameters
to be passed to the initial macro. The value of the
variable must be 200 characters or less.
