That's great thanks ! I don't know what happened on the 22nd of April, but I can finally set the COMMIT option in REXX.

Which is EXACTLY what you did previously. This is a perfect example of what irritates me about so many of the questions on this list.

You had the same problem less than 6 months ago. You asked about it here and were directed how to solve it. That SHOULD have been a LEARNING experience! Now it's happened again and you can't remember the resolution. That's the problem with "quick" answers. Better that someone is directed where to find the resolution so THEY have to do some work to solve it. Then there is at least some minor hope they might LEARN from the experience instead of simply resolve, move on, and forget. A similar effect is found by pointing out the stupidity of certain questions. It sticks in the mind (of most people) even if it also sticks in their craw. That's LEARNING!

Seems to me you couldn't even recall that you HAD this problem which might have triggered a search of the archives or perhaps your own e- mail folders. Hell, even if you didn't recall that you, personally, had this problem, a search for 7008 (or better: 7008 rexx) in the archives would have found a resolution and your question would have been entirely unnecessary. You would have solved it yourself.

As the trailer on EVERY post from the list says:
