Hi
I need a program to delete a record (any line) inside ps or pds using rexx.
the program must read a ps/pds and delete a particular line/record in an array....


Regards,
Ceasar

There is no REXX direct function to delete a record from dataset. However, you still have at least 3 options:

1) Use ISPF services LMMGET/LMMPUT to read and write the records back.

2) Use EXECIO to read and write records.

3) If the file is EDITable, you can use edit macro.

I can't figure out from the origina post why the user wouldn't just edit the dataset and delete the row/rows?
