Am new to REXX/CLIST, begining with the following code to handle the files. Am facing the problem when executing this code for the second time. it says DATASET IN USE.

Here is my code:

ALLOCATE FILE(SALARIES) DA('<FILENAME>') SHR REU
OPENFILE SALARIES OUTPUT
SET SALARIES=XXYYZZ
PUTFILE SALARIES
END
FREE FILE('<FILENAME>')
CLOSFILE SALARIES

Experts assistance will help me.

Regards, Ruthran

I would take a good look at the FREE statement in the CLIST or TSO/E manual, easily reached from the sticky at the top of the CLIST & REXX forum

Even looking at your code gives a clue
Code:
 FREE FILE('data set name')

You specify that you want to free a FILE (DD Name) but specify a datatset name as the parameter. Maybe paying attention to the rules might help you.

Found the problem

Coded the "END" in middle of the code triggers this issue..

Thx for the assistance.
