Thanks in advance folks.
Earlier SWAPBAR command was not working. so i found a rexx program and i can see the bar.
REXX PGM:
/*REXX*/
ADDRESS ISPEXEC
"SELECT PGM(ISPTL) PARM(&ZPARM)"

Executed this from command line as: TSO EXEC 'PS FILE NAME'.

Now i am trying to execute SCRNAME ABC command. It shows SCRNAME is invalid option. Is there any way to do it?
All i am trying to change screen names on SWAP BAR.
MY ISPF is 7.1. I am using COBOL 5.1

From the "Identifier" pull-down on ISPF Settings screen, select "Screen name...", the Screen Name Identifier panel will be displayed.
Code:
┌────────────────── ISPF Settings ──────────────────┐
│ SETTINGS     Screen Name Identifier               │
│                                                   │
│ Enter "/" to select option                        │
│ /  Display screen name                            │
│                                                   │
│ Default setting for screen name                   │
│ 1  1. Off                                         │
│    2. On                                          │
│                                                   │
│                                                   │
└───────────────────────────────────────────────────┘


If you select the "Display screen identifier" option, the screen identifier is set to On. This setting only applies to the current ISPF session. To retain the setting across ISPF sessions, select "Default setting for screen identifier".

Mistah : I am talking about SCRNAME command for command bar. This will change screen names as per our requirement, which are displayed on swapbar

Did you ensure that screen name is ON, before trying SCRNAME ABC??

Yes screen name is on. Anyways the SCREEN NAME you are talking about is an option in IDENTIFIER tab under settings. This will only show screen name on top of screen.

This will not allow us to change the screen names as per our wish

In that case, its your environment specific issue. Check with your site support team.

This can happens when AUTOEXEC in user's profile is updated. When not properly setup, it conflicts with basic functionalities such as SCRNAME.
