You can't:
  1. "Rexx program" (not "utility") and "edit macro" are not synonymous, nor is one a(n im)proper subset of the other.
  2. You cannot use line commands in an edit macro.
  3. Hi, Opal!

However, you can use primary commands to do pretty much anything that can be done with line commands. Study the ISPF Edit and Edit Macros manual and if you have specific questions, ask them and we'll answer them (subject to the usual conditions).

You can write Line Commands Macros starting with z/OS 1.13. See the fine manual for more details.


In older versions, you can use the PROCESS macro command to process a range of rows selected by the ISPF's line commands.
