Is there a way to access RMDS (REPORT MANAGEMENT DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM) using REXX to pull a particular report?
I have gone through the RMDS manual link but there i could not find the way of accessing RMDS reports through REXX.
Can anyone help me in this?
I just want to ask that suppose we want to get Start & end time of various reports in the RMDS we will have to again & again go into those particular reports & find....
I am asking is there any way so that we can get all the info. in 1 dataset??

i assume you are a user and not an administrator.
the Admin Guide suggests that reports can be bundled, offloaded, downloaded....
the User Guide indicates that a user can set-up his own reports.
Accessing the information via REXX
(is this another example of a TOOL looking for a use?)
would be a waste of time.
By the time you understood the file/records structures,
found/wrote all the necessary extras to access the different file structures used by RMDS,
you could have digested enough information to provide yourself an RMDS built-in facility.
Suggest you spend time learning how to use what RMDS has,
instead of providing your own preconceived necessary add-ons.
The activity you describe is not unique, and I am sure RMDS has a built-in solution,
for those who have to repeatedly perform the same task because they did not bother to do it correctly the first time.
