The answer, I think, is yes, but why can't you use a SUPERC search to obtain the same results?

I have done that however I just want to filter out all the unnecessary which comes along with the SUPC o/p.

I mean i want to somehow automate the tool and after scanning i want to take those o/p files for further processing and not the entire data which comes along with the SUPC.

Please clarify what you mean by 'file name'. I suspect you mean DD name, but you might also mean dataset name.

You can invoke SUPERC from within REXX, then manipulate OUTDD from the same REXX.

look like You do not care to understand what is being suggested

proceed like in the dfsort case

instead of processing the result with sort process it with rexx

ISRSUPC has some options that allows you to minimize most of the "unnecessary":
  • IDPFX Identifier prefixed. ID or member-name is prefixed to the search string lines of the listing.
  • NOPRTCC No printer control columns... NOPRTCC eliminates both the page separators and control column 1.
  • NOSUMS No summary listing section. This option omits the summary section including the statistics, options, warning, and error messages from the listing output.
