Dear All,


I need to write a REXX to get the last userid of any member,

For example, Below are the members...

PRAVIN.PROD.COBOL(TESTPGM1)
PRAVIN.PROD.COBOL(TESTPGM2)
PRAVIN.PROD.COBOL(TESTPGM3)
PRAVIN.PROD.COBOL(TESTPGM4)

I need to get the LAST USERID of these members, which is displayed in ISPF menu as below
Name Prompt Size Created Changed ID
TESTPGM1 6158 2006/07/27 2011/05/30 03:54:00 PRAVIN

I tried to use USERID() function to get it but this fucntion was returning my userid only and not that of last user id the member....

Kindly provide the directions...

regards
Pravin

ISPF Statistics are a function of ISPF, not a development language. Try making a call to the LMMLIST ISPF Service.

This is a link to a website that has a REXX program to read a PDS directory and show the ISPF stats:

the ISPF statistics are a bit weak as auditing support...
ispf option 3.5 ( reset ISPF statistics ) will set the ISPF statistics almost to everything
so you might just be wasting time icon_biggrin.gif

Someone has already pointed to a working example and someone has pointed you to to the LM functions. Use the Rexx manual and ISPF services manual (I think for LM services) to do what you want. You could check it against sillysot.

pravin1234jd, superk provided you a clear indication of what you need to do, and then even provided a link to a REXX program that provides the data you asked for.

So, why are you STILL asking how to do it when you've been told (at least twice) how to do it?

thx superk,enrico-sorichetti,Nic Clouston,Robert Sample for you directions

I have got it done by using LMMLIST but I am facing another problem....

If my pds name is MYUSREID.DEV.JCLLIB I have to use it as "DEV.JCLLIB"
if I use it as "MYUSREID.DEV.JCLLIB" LMINIT give RC=8
because of this I can not use this rexx to get last userid of production or any other userid member.

How can I make it use dsn name as i give in input ?

Please provide me directions, I will get my way thru if icon_cool.gif ....

When you are specifying MYUSREID.DEV.JCLLIB, your useid is getting automatically pre-pended, to give MYUSREID.MYUSREID.DEV.JCLLIB. When you use DEV.JCLLIB then you get what you want, MYUSREID.DEV.JCLLIB.

So, you have to find out how to stop the system automatically preprending your user-id to a dataset for your execution of your rexx.

Hello,
I assume that there is a problem with ' or " on the PDS name..So the command takes your userID as the first qualifier of the dataset by default.

But we could help you only if you provide the code that you have tried and also run it with trace.

Edited: Bill beat me to the reply

thanks Bill Woodger & vasanthz for quick reply

Below is the REXX code which I used

Code:
DSNAME = 'DEV.JCLLIB'                                     
ISPEXEC "LMINIT DATAID(LMID) DATASET(" DSNAME ")"                   
SAY RC                                                             
SAY DSNAME                                                         
ISPEXEC "LMOPEN DATAID(" LMID ")"                                   
SAY RC                                                             
                                                                   
MEMBER = 'BINDJCL'                                                   
ISPEXEC "LMMLIST DATAID("LMID") MEMBER(MEMBER) STATS(YES)"           
SAY RC                                                             
SAY ZLMDATE  ZLMTIME ZLUSER  MEMBER
[/code]

When running rexx and there is a problem, I first look at the code for the "obvious" and then run it with a trace (I like "trace i").

If you had done this, you'd have seen what was happening.

You have all the SAYs, once you have it "working" are you going to replace them with proper error-checking or just let is roll? You'll save yourself (or others) time if you do the error-checking code. To me, there is not much point in ever leaving it out (to make a new program, copy some working code that has tricky bits close to what you want, use the editor (initially, DD-DD, D, that sort of stuff) but leave the error-checking).

At this point we are assuming you read Vasanthz's post and Peter's post and have a solution or two.

Edit: or even the explicit one from Mojo-Jojo.
