suppose in an evaluate statement multiple true conditions are there..which one will get executed...

e.g

EVALUATE TRUE
WHEN (TIB1(WS-INDEX)= SPACES)
MOVE WS-GAIND TO TIB1(WS-INDEX)
WHEN (TIB2(WS-INDEX)= SPACES)
MOVE WS-GAIND TO TIB2(WS-INDEX)
WHEN (TIB3(WS-INDEX)= SPACES)
MOVE WS-GAIND TO TIB3(WS-INDEX)
WHEN (TIB(WS-INDEX)= SPACES)
MOVE WS-GAIND TO TIB4(WS-INDEX)
END-EVALUATE

IF TIB3 AND TIB4 ARE SPACES WHERE WILL GAIND BE PASSED

Hi

The first statement in the drop down menu which is true would be executed...

In your case as stated above

WHEN (TIB3(WS-INDEX)= SPACES)
MOVE WS-GAIND TO TIB3(WS-INDEX)
will be true before
WHEN (TIB(WS-INDEX)= SPACES)
MOVE WS-GAIND TO TIB4(WS-INDEX)

thus WS-GAIND will be passed to TIB3(WS-INDEX)

I hope this helps..

HI,

From the manual,

Quote:
The execution of the EVALUATE statement ends when:
The statements associated with the selected WHEN phrase are performed.
The statements associated with the WHEN OTHER phrase are performed.
No WHEN conditions are satisfied.


So the statement(s) following the first when condition which is satisfied will be executed and after that it goes to teh scope terminator.

Thanks & Regards,
kousalya
