I guess this might have got discussed earlier in this Forum but I could not get much info so posting for some assistance here.

I am having a PS File having records like
Code:

Alpha
Beta
Gamma


I need to read this file and write into anothr existing PS File in format
Code:

I AM WRITING Alpha
I AM WRITING Beta
I AM WRITING Gamma


I have a Rexx code written which is not giving any error, but not writing data into output file. Kindly correct me where am doing wrong, or point me to any link where I can refer to

Code:

/* REXX */                                                             
 ADDRESS "TSO"                                                         
        "ALLOC DA('W#E00G.LIST.MEM') F(INDD) SHR REUSE"                 
        "ALLOC DA('W#E00G.LIST.MEM.LMS') F(OUTDD) OLD REUSE"           
         SAY 'COPYING ...'                                             
          "EXECIO * DISKR INDD (FINIS STEM READ1"                       
          DO I = 1 BY 1 UNTIL I = 5                                     
            WRITED.I  = "I AM WRITING" || READ1.I                       
          END                                                           
          "EXECIO * DISKW OUTDD(FINIS STEM WRITED"                     
          SAY 'COPY COMPLETE'                                           
               "FREE F(INDD OUTDD)"                                     
         EXIT

Note that in EXECIO, both for input and output, there is a difference between varname and varname.; the former is not a stem. Change your STEM specifications.
