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:
Code:
dsn_member = 'HLQ.SPF.COBOL('member')'
MyParms = '7 14 A'
Address ISPEXEC "EDIT DATASET('"dsn_member"') MACRO(MYMACRO) PARM(MyParms)"


In the macro:
Code:
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 ISPF Edit and Edit Macro commands.

Another repetitive topic that seems like it's been beaten to death. icon_rolleyes.gif

It's quite plainly shown when you do a copy of one of the ISPF EDIT models into your code:

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                ',
     'PRESERVE             PARM('parmvar')'                           
'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          ', 
     'PRESERVE             PARM('parmvar')'     

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.
