Hi All,

I need your help in generating the tool.
Requirement is:

I have a member of PDS opened on screen. Now I want to open job from production giving the command in the same window as "JOB Jobname". So,this window will be split to show production job and my test job in two parts.

Attached is the screenshot of how I would like to call macro.

Thanks,
Avanti

What do you want the macro JOB to do exactly (I can't find any documentation that you can use the SPLIT command in a macro) and what is the paramter JOBNAME (is that a literal or what?).

Can't you just use the EPDF primary command?

You can also create a rexx program for same.

You can use the ISPSTRT program (see Dialog Developer's Guide) to split the screen and start another application.

Something like this:
1. SELECT PGM(ISPSTRT) PARM(CMD(somecmd))
2. from 'somecmd', start your EDIT or VIEW.
