Hello,

I am Setting a Label .A for a line using the command
Code:
"ISREDIT (LNM) = LINENUM .ZCSR"     
"ISREDIT LABEL (LNM) = .A" 


But when I try to locate the Label using another macro(without exiting the current Screen) ist giving an error message

Code:
"ISREDIT LOCATE .A"     
 
Command in error . : LOCATE .A                       
                                                     
 Invalid parameter                                   
 Invalid line number or label or LOCATE keyword.     
                                                     
   Error message ID . : ISRE066                       
                                                     
   Last return code . : 20   


And the same will work if we write both codes in same macro.
I have tried by saving the linenum to Profile variable and locate the line using linenum in next macro. But that also returned the same error.

Can you make sure that it is the problem with Locate and Not the Label ?

May be the label is Not set and that is why it's not able to locate?

Can you check please?

Are your macros calling each other, i.e.

from the Edit command-line:
Code:
"macro"

from "macro":
Code:
"isredit submacro"

from "submacro":
Code:
"isredit another"

The answer is almost certainly yes, which means that you urgently need to read the chapter about the LABEL command in the manual, because that will explain everything.

And in fact, even if you call them sequentially, you will run into the same problem, that, after reading the manual, turns out to be not a problem at all, because it's working as designed!

Hi All,

I am using two different macros. In one macro i will set the Label as .A. In another one I will try to locate the Label .A. And as I said earlier ist working properly if I use the command LOCATE LABEL .A in the first macro itself.

I did this after reading the Manual www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_1.13.0/com.ibm.zos.r13.f54em00/labels.htm%23labels

So the first macro does not call the second macro? If that is the case you did NOT read all of that document - especially the section Referring to labels
