Hi,
I want to get the dataset name from which the my rexx program is being executed. I have used Parse Source command.
Code:
PARSE SOURCE A B C D E F

When I am executing my rexx program directly from the dataset, I am getting the dataset name into E variable.
Quote:
TSO COMMAND EXAMPLE1 SYS00105 DEVSXM2.CLIST.TEST ? TSO ISPF ?

But When I am executing my rexx program as a TSO command like "TSO program name", I am getting the E variable as ?.
Quote:
TSO COMMAND EXAMPLE1 SYSEXEC ? ? TSO ISPF ?


So, is there any other way to get the dataset name in the second case?
