Hi,

I have a FIELD in a table which is defined as INT.
Logic in program is it is getting MAX(FIELD) in to a S9(9) COMP variable.

Initially when no rows are there in table, what will the function return?
Checking this I have to move '1' to this field.

Thanks,
Naresh.

Hi anaresh ,
The sqlcode will return 100.
check for the sqlcode if it is 0 then move wharever you have to
if it is 100 move 1 to the field.

The function will return a null. You can check the null indicator also. But, the column should be not null.

Hi,

Thats true if the column is not defined with NOT NULL ,then if null is being passed to the application hist variable it will be returning a SQLCODE -305.As Bharat told we can handle this situation through NULLINDICATOR.

Thanks
