Hi All,
As of now I have coded as below in the panel.

_ TYPE(INPUT) COLOR(GREEN) PAD(' ') CAPS(ON)
! TYPE(OUTPUT) COLOR(RED) PAD(' ') CAPS(ON)

I have a requirement to use a variable in my panel for both input and output.
Is there any way to declare variables as INPUT/OUTPUT in ISPF?
Please suggest.

TIA

If you specify the attribute as INPUT, then you can also specify an initial value before you display the panel. So, yes it is both output and input.

Your question is not clear, and there could be a few answers.
Here is one:

You can define an attribute with a variable:
Code:
_ TYPE(&FLDATTR) COLOR(GREEN) PAD(' ') CAPS(ON)

Then in the rexx program you can set the attribute:
Code:
If User = 'ADMIN' Then
   FLDATTR = 'INPUT'
Else
   FLDATTR = 'OUTPUT'
