I am new to REXX, Below code is working fine for some users but same code gives error for other users :

CODE :

Code:
DSN2 = 'MY.PS.FILE'               
"Alloc F(RDATA) REUS DA('"DSN2"') SHR"         
"ExecIO * DiskR RDATA (Stem Lines. Finis "     
Count = Lines.0                                 
"DelStack"           
"Free FILE(RDATA)"


Error :

Code:
 *-*    "Free FILE(RDATA)"
 +++ RC(-2054) +++ 


To add this file is not freed till that user logoff from TSO. This file is available to others only after that user is logged off.
I am not sure if there is something in user profile that is affecting it. Is there a work around to FREE it for all users.

Thanks,
Sankalp.

can you show us a trace?

This does not appear to be the full code... perhaps you have an Address statement that you are not showing us.

The -2054 return code from FREE suggests that FREE is ending with a S806 abend, although unless you have changed the default environment I can't think of a non-arcane way that this could happen. If possible, run this in batch using the IKJEFT1A entry point of background TSO, and check the sysout for CS messages

Thanks for replying guys!

This is the full code. For testing I copied these 7 lines in a separate PDS member and asked that user to execute it. He is getting the same -2054 error. While all other user can execute it without error.

Code:
VIEW       MY.TOOLS.REXXLIB(TEST) - 01.34          Columns 00001 00072
Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR 
****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
000001 /* REXX, Test tool */                                                   
000002     DSN2 = 'MY.PS.FILE'                                   
000003     "Alloc F(RDATA) DA('"DSN2"') SHR"                               
000004     "ExecIO * DiskR RDATA (Stem Lines. Finis"       
000005     Count = Lines.0                       
000006     "DelStack"                                                         
000007     "Free FILE(RDATA)"



Below is the trace data :
Code:

        +++ RC(-2054) +++ 


This file is not open by anyone but still it is saying file in use.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One more strange this is , his start up procedures (that allocates SYSPROC and other things) runs at the time he logoff. For all other user, this runs at the time of logging IN to TSO.

Also when he PF3 from librarian browse module , he gets the same error. This is because browsing a dataset in librarian creates a temporary dataset and deletes this temp dataset when we do PF3. But he gets same -2054.

When we browse a module we get :

Code:
DATA SET PRD.USER.TEMP.MODULE.LB11111 CREATED.                             
THE MODULE JUST COPIED IS NOT OUTSTANDING DUE TO "READONLY" SPECIFIED.         
***


When we PF3 it simply exits without any error. But this user get following error message when he does PF3 from lib-browse :

Code:
        *-*  ADDRESS TSO "DELETE" bTSO                   
        +++ RC(-2054) +++                                 
 ***

I changed his profile to have WTPMSG from NOWTPMSG . Now it is giving the actual error description :

Any idea, in which library module DELETE can be found ?

Code:
        >O>   "Alloc FILE(RDATA) DA('MY.PS.FILE') SHR"           
 DATA SET MY.PS.FILE NOT ALLOCATED, FILE IN USE   

The message is complaining about file name, RDATA, not about the data set name. The same user already has it allocated. Your earlier example showed ALLOC with REUS, which is what you should have.

All signs point to a setup problem.

Some sites have a command field on the panel when you logon and provide the password. Some sites have the start up procedure executed from the logon proc. If you provide a 'ISPF' command in the command field, it might gets done first, preventing the start up procedure from being executed until ISPF ends.

I would expect DELETE to be in the linklist... available to all TSO users at all times. but perhaps the delay in executing the start up procedure causes it not to be found.

Some questions:
Do you all use the same logon proc?

Do you all specify the same region size? (sometimes, you get an 806 abend when there is no room to load the module).

Is everyone's start up procedure the same? Compare the broken user's start up with one that works.

This is probably important:
Code:
IEW4007I FIND FOR MODULE DELETE   FAILED BECAUSE DIRECTORY ENTRY IS NOT VALID FOR A LOAD MODULE.

I think the user has a steplib with a corrupt directory. Have the user issue TSO ISRDDN, followed by command MEMBER DELETE to find which PDS is corrupt.

Thanks you so much for helping!

It was because of one member named DELETE in a PDS which was allocated to SYSEXEC. I found some other members like FREE etc.... also in that PDS. That was preventing the REXX to execute DELETE/FREE. REXX issue is solved now.

Lesson learned:
Do not use common command verbs as rexx exec names.

And perhaps another lesson: check after each significant statement. A test of the RC value after the ALLOCATE would have showed that that is where the problem actually was, not with the FREE.
