I've recently discovered the world of REXX VSAM and FILEMGR.
I've successfully populated a VSAM file using FILEMGR with STEM.
I've successfully read the data with FILEMGR and STEM.

Very cool!

I would like to use REXX to query my new VSAM file with a key and get a record. Maybe using FILEMGR FCH or something else?

Maybe there is a non-FILEMGR solution?

I've been googling and haven't found a solution. I'm ready to be enlightened by the gurus.

I found an example of using "REPRO" with FROMKEY to write to a temp file and then used "EXECIO" to read the file into a STEM variable.

That worked. icon_biggrin.gif

I tried another example using OUTTRAP and "PRINT" but got RACF'd icon_mad.gif

Is there a better way?

Two free REXX VSAM acess programs springs to mind:
RXVSAMBA from CBTTAPE.ORG file file 669 and http://harders-jensen.com/wjtech/zprograms.html (newest). This one reads and writes multiple records to/from stem or stack with optional filtering.
RXVSAM from CBTTAPE.ORG file 268 does single record access.

I've always used the REPRO FROMKEY TOKEY option.

Slow but effective.

SAS if you have it is quite good for VSAM too
