Is it possible to call an external Rexx routine from rules

    I have a repetitive date routine that converts Julian to Normal date format, is it possible to call an external REXX from a REQ rule and return the converted date?    That way I don't have to copy this routine everywhere.

     

    I am putting the routine in one of my OPS SYSEXEC DD dataset and the call is not finding it.

     

    COMPILING TEST.ONETIME, LINE 9: ROUTINE JCONV NOT FOUND 

     

    Thanks

    Well,  in the past I had an issue with this and was prepared for it not to work.  But I have reinstalled  OPS since the last time I tried and totally reconfigured it.  Short answer, don't go into a situation with preconceived awareness.  I basically misspelled the REXX member name, fixed the spelling and off we go.  Sometimes the most obvious is the most difficult to accept.  Also, don't try to do real work when you are on call for all of zOS.

    Trust me those are the most difficult issues to resolve.

    Glad you are back in track.
