A 16 return code indicates an error occurred, most likely the dataset was not found. If you do not include the dataset in apostraphes it will append your file prefix onm the beginnig. code the lstdsi:
rtn = listdsi('MYPREFX.MYGROUP.LIBRARY')
or
rtn = listdsi("'"rexx_var"'")

Hi there,

I am also trying to execute REXX in CMS but couldn't get it working.

my code is as follows:

/* REXX GETGDG */
RC = LISTDSI ('DIS.DIDF1601.DI11030.A20')

and it is not working

Please help.
