Paul, I haven't used REXX to FTP files the way you've described. I have kicked off a batch job to run an FTP step and on our Z/os box the secure FTP is built-in. As it turns out - regarding the comments/color problem - ANY character I type between the comments and the next valid SAS line momentarily causes color code to return - until the line becomes recognized as a valid SAS statement - then the minimal-color-code problem returns.

Hey Zak -

Don't know why the color changes - in v912 it doesn't.

BTW - hope you don't mind an off-L question - have you ever written a REXX script for a secure FTP transfer from MVS? We're working with a group from Stanford (Sphere/Acumen) and they are leaning towards this as a solution to a regular data transfer they need.

I'm interested in launching such a script from SAS but REXX is outside my knowledge area.

thanks

Dear SAS-L;

I have simplified the comments section for clarity. The comments as they are shown below have a problem of minimizing any following SAS color-code. But if I put a forward slash to the right of any of the 3 following right-most forward slashes. The SAS color code following the comments returns to normal. Anyone know/see why? It's from Windows XP SAS 8.2.
