Does anyone have a idea if/how I can execute a REXX EXEC from WF? (Where I am going with this, is that my code is going to create a PDF report HOLD file, and then FTP that file, via FTP commands within the REXX EXEC.) Regards,<br />DaveThis message has been edited. Last edited by: <Mabel>,
My user is filling out a launch page in a self-service web application. They have a choice between seeing their PDF report within their browser, or having the PDF report being sent to a UNIX server via FTP. So, I don't have the option to have REXX call WF to do the report, and then FTP the report.
I looked up your suggested syntax possibility in the manual, and indeed there is a command -MVS op_system command.
So, I did try it, and while the FOC1517 went away, the REXX EXEC did not execute.
In FOCUS for z/OS, SYSPROC is where FOCUS looks for REXX code. (This technique works ok in FOCUS for z/OS.) At this point, I'm guessing I'll have to do something different, in WebFOCUS running under a z/OS Reporting Server. Thank you for your comment. Regards,DaveThis message has been edited.
