Hello,

Am trying to issue some messages to console from Cobol. But message is splitted in to different lines and not able to mention continuation. Heard that REXX WTO can issue multiline message to Console. Anyone know the command / procedure for the same

Why do you need to write messages to the console?Uness the message requires a reply then it will probably be off the screen in a matter of seconds.

This is to generate some alert .. Automation scripts can read the message from console to create alerts

And did you talk with the Automation people if they want to trap your messages and do something about it?

REXX do not have a built-in WTO.
The best WTO / WTOR that I have found are ALXRWTO and ALXRXTOR found at: http://www.sscmainframe.com/freeware.htm
It of course assumes that you can install programs at your site.

Instead of writing messages to a console that no one will read why not generate an e-mail with the alert?

What automation product is being used at your site?

If it is CA/OPS then you can use this command to sent WTO messages:

Code:
T = 'THIS IS OPSWTO TEST MESSAGE'
"OPSWTO MSGID('MYMSG##') TEXT('"T"')"


Your automation people should be able to help you.
