Hi,
I am coding a REXX utility that uses the ISP services to copy PDS members from one to another. I execute the rexx in a JCL as shown below.

Code:
//TSOxxxx1 JOB 'TSOxxx','INSTALL',CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X,NOTIFY=&SYSUID
//*                                                               
//R010    EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01                                       
//ISPPROF  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TSOxxxx.ISPF.SYSx.PROFILE               
//ISPPLIB  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS2.ISPF.ISPPLIB                       
//ISPMLIB  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS2.ISPF.ISPMLIB                       
//ISPTLIB  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS2.ISPF.ISPTLIB                       
//ISPSLIB  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS2.ISPF.ISPSLIB                       
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*                                             
//SYSEXEC  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYS2.OPS.TECHPROD.REXX                 
//         DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TSOxxxx.WORKAREA                       
//SYSTSIN  DD *                                                   
 ISPSTART CMD(%AUTOINST 'RULELIB(TECHQUAL) ADDRULEAUTO(TESTSR)')


And when submitted, I get the below error in the spool. Can anyone please help me rectify this?
Code:

READY                                                               
 ISPSTART CMD(%AUTOINST 'RULELIB(TECHQUAL) ADDRULEAUTO(TESTSR)')     
Invalid keyword ''RULELIB'                                           
Invalid keyword '''                                                 
Either of rule library name or rexx library name should be specified
ISPD117                                                             
The initially invoked CLIST ended with a return code = 12           
 TSOxxxx.ISP06213.SPFLOG1.LIST has been kept.                       
READY                                                               
END

Check line 42 of your exec!

Drop the quotes from the command?
I agree with prino, it looks like your clist handles the parm incorrectly.

I bet in your “REXX utility” you are using
Code:
Parse Arg Param ‘(‘ Value ‘)’ NextParam

That’s why you get what your code is desined to do 36_2_51.gif 36_11_6.gif

If you expect something else then you must present your code here, or fix your code by yourself

Did you understand thar your problem has been caused by your own code which you are trying to hide from view at this forum, but seeking for help from readers who have no idea about your code?!!

It is the same as trying to fix a car by phone, just calling the workshop, without bringing the car for repair! icon_pray.gif 36_2_18.gif

Your exec is probably somewhat complicated and you do not wish people to see it.

Per Sergeyken's suggestion, in a situation like this, you can write a short 'hello world' version of your exec. If fact, that should be the first thing to write as a proof of concept to make sure your process works. You can share that code here without fear of someone stealing your work or of being ridiculed for it.
