Hello,

Did you intend this to be a jcl question?

I am not aware of an extended return code in jcl icon_confused.gif

This smells like a COBOL question. icon_wink.gif

Are you referring to the two-byte display-numeric file-status (return-code) and the six-byte group-level extended file-status (extend-code, which consists of three elementary binary-halfwords) defined to a given VSAM file in a COBOL SELECT statement?

Regards,

You're welcome icon_smile.gif

Also, at the top of the page is a link to "IBM Manuals". One of them is the COBOL Programming Guide. It also has cobol/vsam info.

Good luck icon_wink.gif
