Hi,

in one of the program, to abnormally terminate GOBACk/STOPRUN statements are used along with RETURN-CODE.

Will these statements COMMIT the database updates done before terminating the application?

Thanks for your help!!!

These statements have nothing to do with commit in particular. If the program ends normally, uncommitted work is commited. If the program abends, uncommitted work is rolled back.

Hello,

These are not "abends" - these are controlled terminations. If there is a need to rollback the work that was done, the code needs to specifically issue the rollback.

For a true abend (Sxxx or Unnnn) the rollback would be automatic for whatever work had not yet been committed.
