program as a input and interface with that panel with our Rexx program logic and jcl .

Second Tool involved opening of copy-book of any transaction of vantage(insurance) and any

segments by writing only one tso rexx command. this will open all related copy-book without

repeating all the lengthy process of opening copy-book. and save our time.
