Hi guys,

when I try to execute a REXX from the command line with an option (i.e. SPUFI; Option 1), it works fine : Command ===> TSO DB2I;1

How can I execute this call within a REXX ?

When I try "%DB2I;1" in my REXX, I got the message :
IKJ56621I INVALID COMMAND NAME SYNTAX

What is the problem, maybe the delimiter...?

Using cmd;1 is something you would tend to do in ISPF, not in TSO. Maybe you should be using an ISPF SELECT command instead?

If I want to call an exec from another exec and pass it parameters, I would just code:

Code:
/* REXX */
...
"EXECNAME 'PARAMETERS'"
...

Hi Kevin,

thanks for the quick answer !

... your solutions don't work for me, because I like to pass an option not a parameter. The parameter is not recognized as an option by the called REXX.

One (I think not smart solution but it works) is :

address ispexec
zcmd = ';TSO DB2I;1'
"control nondispl end"
"display panel(isrtso)"

Has anybody a better solution for my prolem ?
