To view/edit Datasets with Qualifiers

Post by vickypunjabi4 » Thu Jul 18, 2013 10:56 am

I am working on a tool and need some help as I am stuck at a point.
If we use this command:
then we can open a datset in edit mode.
But I want to open the data set with qualifier as below:

It should open all the datsets with this qualifier and then we can go inside in edit/view mode same as done after 3.4.

Is there any command in REXX to do this.Please help
Thanks and Regards
Vicky Punjabi

No, there is no such command. EDIT is to edit a single file.

When you use 3.4 you are presented with a dataset list. From that you can EDIT the file you specify. I am not aware of a way to edit multiple datasets in the same invocation of the editor.

The Rexx language is not that big - you could have had a quick look through the language reference manual in less time than it took to make your post. And note that neither of those two lines of code are Rexx.
