+1 is not a version it is a generation - in GxxxxVyy Gxxxx is generation Vyy is version.
If you are writing to a dataset then the DISP for that dataset should be either OLD or NEW either of which gives a lock on the dataset so no other task can write to it until the dataset has been released.

It would help if you posted rexx queries in the rexx part of the forum. This same rule applies to all posts - post in the correct part of the forum for your query.

1) you should strt a new topic - you can cross-reference it to this. 2) If you used that exact code then it is no wonder that you did not get an email unless your email address really is name@company.com and your file name really is text_file.txt 3) Have you checked with your systems group that A,SM...

You should use the code tags when posting code, data etc. This will preserve spacing and make the code easier to read. On coding style: why do you give an input file a DDname of OUTDD? This is confusing - especially to anyone reading the JCL. If you DID retype the whole program note that it is easie...

Well, unless someone knows this particular software package and has used that particular facility and no one in your shop, including the system people, knows then you, or the rmds support should contact the vendor for example code to do what you want. I'm afraid that that is all that I can suggest.
