Hi,

can one of you help me by answering below questions.

1) In which dataset ISPF panel are stored.

2) if we need to use a user defined panel in a rexx program using ispf display statement, how to make the program to refer to the user defined panel instead of default library.

to explain more...

i have created a panel say panel1 which i have in my personal library and i wrote a rexx program to call this panel. when i execute this exec it searches in the default library for Panel ( i would like to know this dataset name ????). How to make it refer to the panel which i created. where i need to concatenate my panel library and using which command.


thanks for your kind help

regards
Muthu

At last i got the answer

1) when Panel command is used in the program the program searches in the datasets concatenated under the ddname ISPPLIB.

2) In order to pick the user defined panel, concatenate the library to ISPPLIB using the following TSO command.

CONCATEM DD(ISPPLIB) DSN('USER.PANELS')

thanks for all the minds which researched for me

hello,

sorry for late answer.

concatem is not an ibm standard.

tso ISRDDN will show all allocated libraries and their connecting DDNAMES

to have your rexx or program point to your own ISPF library (say panellib)
Code:

ADDRESS ispexec
  "libdef ispplib DAtaset id('"userid()".exo.rexx') "      /* panel lib */
  "libdef ispLlib DAtaset id('"userid()".exo.LOAD') "     /* load lib */
 


now I think concatem was defined in-house to do the concatenation
