Hi All,

In order to run a rexx program as macro (customize the run search library), can you guys suggest how I can achieve it or give me the key word to search the forum.

The rexx program will read the input file and for each input record, prepare JCL and submit it. I know how to run rexx using IKJEFT01 but need some info to run via macro.

Best Regards,

I think you do NOT mean macro at all, but by description you mean to pass a parameter to it, to run it as a function.

Something like this (untested):
Code:

"EXECIO * DISKR MYINFO (FINIS STEM INFO."

Do b = 1 to info.0
a= myfunc1(info.b)
End
exit

/* this is an internal function */
myfunc1:
parse arg someline '.'
/* process the line */
return 0


If you want myfunc1 to be an external routine, make it a different member. Probably, the main concept is the use of the PARSE ARG instruction to get the parameters that are passed in.
