Hello,

To get help, you need to actually describe what you are trying to do. . .

This could include sample input/output data as well as a description of what filemaster is to do.

What reason is there that filemaster is a requitement?

well i have a requirement in validating a cluster file so to open that cluster file we have to input the values each and everytime to view the file for correct positioning of the records.

Hence my tool internally will be substituting the input values to be given and directly show him the record for which he has been opted for.

Hello,

Is this "cluster file" a vsam ksds? If not, what is it?

Who is "he"?

If i understand the requirement, this kind of inquiry is most often implemented using a screen and code in a cics inquiry transaction. . .

on the TSO option if the user types in the CLIST like
Code:

 TSO <CLIST-NAME> <record num>


then the values to open a VSAM file thru file master are given thru the REXX program and then presented the user with the record if existing in the VSAM file.

So to connect to File master from the REXX i need the connection to establish and input the values thru REXX to achieve the above procedure.
