how to do it is clearly explained in the FILEMGR manuals

read about FILEMGR DSB/DSE/DSV

no reason to rewrite the info provided there

Thank you enrico-sorichetti !!!

I can see the file manager manual refers to the IBM FM functionality can be made using REXX program ....

I want to invoke the panel using REXX program.

Eg: If i type a command like DSV infornt of a dataset

DSV XXXXX(Dataset name)

It should open File mmanager panel with view mode ....

Please let me know if im missing anything in the manual ...

YES you missed almost everything ...


go to option 3.4
in front of a PS NOT a PDS enter
FILEMGR DSV

and it will use filemanager view to view the dataset

nothing that could not be done in REXX script

but again ... READ the manuals
