Hi all,

In REXX exec, DS/member is edited by an Edit Macro via ISPF EDIT service, if during the edit RC is not 0, how to pass RC back to REXX exec?

Thanks in advance!

after each call to an ispf service the RC variable contains the service return code

see the manual or the model for the return codes issued by each service

for example after an Addres ISPEXEC EDIT ....
a 0 return code means that the object of the edit was saved
a non 0 return code means that the object of the edit was not

but if You want too percolate some inner return code from the ISREDIT services You must store the RC into a different varialee an use VPUT/VGET

From my understanding, the RC is the completion status of that ISPF service. For example if the DS/member is edited successfully by the ISPF EDIT service via an edit macro, the RC should be 0. During the successful edit, if I want to pass a RC from the edit macro back to the REXX, will that RC work?

I know one solustion is to use ISPF variable, is there any other way to do so?

Thanks.

Thanks enrico-sorichetti.

I want to know if the RC can be passed back by any other way, except using ISPF variable.

Thanks again.
