Hi,

I have a rexx macro which can browse a dataset, but it open it in the same screen. I want it to open in a new screen.

Can you please tell me how to do that?

Yes, it can be done. I have never used this because I have never had the need for it.

Why do you want it opened in another screen. What is your REXX code actually doing. All information appreciated.

When I type VIEWINCL (name of my macro) on the command line placing the cursor on the name of a copybook, it opens the copybook in browse mode in the same screen. I want that it should be opened in a new screen so that I can see both, my program and my copybook.

The chances are that you will not be authorised to update the CLIST or REXX library where the macro is stored. You will need to request your site support people to change this.

However, changing the macro will change it for every user, so getting what you want may be what everyone else does not want.

Yeah I know that. I have access to the macro library. I am making a new macro so people can either use the old one or if they want they can use a new one.

Can you please tell me if its possible to open it in a new screen and how?

I've managed to get it to work with an EDIT screen, but so far not with BROWSE.

Code:
DSN = "dataset_name(member)"
"ISPEXEC SELECT PGM(ISPSTRT) PARM(EPDF '"DSN"' BROWSE)"
From a previous example posted on this forum and of course using the manual to go into BROWSE mode.
