I have submitted a job through rexx. The problem is that the rexx programe must wait and recieve the return code of that submitted job and then execute other operations in it. How to achieve this condition?? icon_cry.gif icon_exclaim.gif

Does your REXX exec trap the jobname and jobid (i.e. job number) of the job that was submitted?

instead of submitting a job,
call the program directly under rexx,
allocate all neccessary datasets first
using the tso-services (i.e. address tso),
then you will also receive a return code,
without leaving your main program...

hi martin
i am actually running the jcl in the method what you have said but the problem is how to recieve the return codes. The rexx doesnt wait for the execution of jcl. it ends before the job get submitted and return codes are produced

hy,
no no no, you did not understand.
first, i assume you have a jcl with one step and you
want further processing depending on the result (i.e. RC=0).
therefore don't start any jcl, instead ...

rexx code...
.
.
address tso
alloc dd(sysin) ...
alloc dd(sysprint) ... and so on...
call *(pgm)
if rc = 0 then further processing
.
.
exit 0

you do all thru rexx!
if you have a jcl with several steps, we should consider
any other solution, for example run everything in batch.
