Hi,

I have a requirement to checkout 1000 components in Changeman and then stage those components from PDS.

For this requirement I am trying to code a macro. We are using Quick3270 Emulator Version 3.37. According to manual of Quick3270 it says since Version 3.10 it supports macros.

But all the VBA key words like "Dim, FreeFile, etc." are giving either "Syntax Error" or "Variable not Initialized" as error message.

Please let me know why VBA key words are not getting translated in Quick3270. Do we have to configure some thing in the Quick3270 for macros to run?

Is there any other approach to automate the process?

Are there any restrictions as to which language these macros can be written in ?

Hi expat,

There is no restriction on language, it should be compatible with IBM Z/OS.

"The Quick3270 macro language syntax is similar to VBA."

see : http://www.dn-computing.com/features.htm

and check your macro('s) with (pdf alert) :

Hi PeterHolland,

I am also referring to same manual for coding macro, but I it’s not getting executed.

The macro created using "Record" option is working fine, but when I edited the macro file with the FILE I/O example of manual it’s giving error.

Please provide me a sample example to read text file using Macro.
