Can you please explain me how to pass a file name or a string from the rexx routine to the file-Aid browse option.

Hi expat,

In the SDSF spool or while I am in ISPF edit/View panel when I open the JCL, I can quickly open the datasets used in JCL, using a REXX macro. I have developed RExx routine where in the panel I will list few options which I can perform against the dataset. ex. View, browse, delete etc. I am able to start ISPF 3.4 option for the view/browse with Dataset name automatically populated in Dsname Level.

I need same in the File-Aid. i.e when I select some option it directly need to open the dataset using File-Aid.(Because I cant open VSAM dataset using 3.4 option).

Currently I use
ADDRESS "ISPEXEC"
"SELECT PGM(ISPSTRT) PARM(B;F;1) "

But the dataset name will not be populated directly in this. I wanted to pass the dataset name here.

Regards,
Chandrashekhara K.

Have you raised this issue with File Aid's vendor? If not, that certainly should be the first place you start.
