Hi Guys,

I would like to know if I can achieve below results through REXX, considering limitations and various advantages of REXX.

We have Weekly ,Monthly ,quarterly , semi-annually and annually task that needs to be performed in Mainframe.

Can I add all tasks in a single datasets and provide it to the REXX so that when I navigate on REXX panel , It will display only the activities that needs to be done in a week ,also giving an end date or it..

ex. If weekly activity xyz is to be done on Monday so when I see the panel ,It should have this task name in it and when I see it on Tuesday ,It should vanish...

please share if you have better ways of doing it...

Certainly Yes,

it is just a plain calendar with remainders

while the display would be a relatively simple task

not the same for the update process

IIRC the cbttape has something already done

Sheesh, ever thought about reading a manual?

REXX has a "date()" builtin function...

My suggestion is to:

1. Keep your event definitions in a data set

2. write a rexx exec that:
a. reads the data set,
b. performs various checks on each record to determine if it is a match for 'today'
c. For selected records, builds an ISPF table of today's events.
d. displays the table
e. supports various line commands, such as to add, delete, or update events.
