Hello,

I am trying to perform a rexx panel validation. My panel will receive two inputs. Input 1 and Input 2. Input 1 is of length six. If the second letter of input 1 is number then input 2 should have value as setupA. I mean to say like if user enters input2 as setupB, then panel should show it as wrong setup type and if the second letter is alphabet then input2 should be setupB( user should enter it as setupB, if not panel should display error message.) Could someone please advice if there is a way in rexx to achieve this.

Thanks.

There is no such thing as a Rexx panel - it is an ISPF panel.

Have you read the dialogue manager reference? In particular read about VERification and Rexx edit routines. Of course, you may be able to get by simply by refencing the built-in models.

Why ask the user to enter a second item that could be wrong - simply have that item generated by your code depending on the value entered by the user?

SUBSTR OR LEFT to know the value at second position and then check the value entered for second field and then decide the error .

The ISPF .TRUNC and .TRAIL functions should allow you to isolate the 2nd char of the field to use in a VER statement. But if you are on a newer z/OS level, I'd defenitely use a builtin REXX - see the )REXX statement.

I agree with Nic's suggestion.
