Hello EveryOne,

1.In Easytrieve How do we check for Not equal to between two fields.
For example when i tried A != B & A Not Equal B. It gave me a return code 16.
Also is A < B a valid statement in easytrieve?
2. In Easytrieve, How do i define a file whose RECFM=VB
I know if the LRECL is 100 in the program it should be defined with 96.
Will it work if i dont give any specific like V/VB in the file definition.

Use '¬=' for NE.

Yes (eg. in 'if' cond).

Your question is not clear. But, I assume you wanted to create VB file. Go through the FILE statement for VB file declaration.

Please 'rework' on easytreive basics.
