Does anyone know if the last issued host command gets captured in a (special) variable?

eg, if i have :
address DSNREXX "EXECSQL DECLARE C1 CURSOR FOR S1"

it would be useful to have access to the last host command, eg, for error reporting.

I do not think the host commands are saved anywhere.

Try something like this:
Code:

last_host_command = "EXECSQL DECLARE C1 CURSOR FOR S1"
address DSNREXX last_host_command


Though, I am pretty sure that rexx will normally stop on a DB2 error. And it will tell you on what rexx statement the error occurred.

yes, that is what I ended up doing - i couldn't find any other way. It's a bit inelegant as I have a large number of separate cursor statements to deal with, but it does the job.
