Hi,

I have program which can be called during online process as well as batch process.

During online process it having issues as im opening an output file which is used only for batch activity.

Is there any way to handle only for batch call we should enable the select and FD sections.For onlie it should get disable.

Hello,

Change the code so that the problem open/write/close is not executed when the program is run online.

for Open and close i have handled it its online those statement will not execute.

But when i try to execute the program its end up in error as select (file definition)statement is there.

But the select statement is need for Batch execution.

Hi Senthil,

I am not entirely sure on this as i have not done this before nor am i in a position to test the same now...

anyway i suggest that maybe you could use the SELECT OPTIONAL phrase in your subroutine.

Usually for this kind of requirement ( PROGRAM/FUNCTION REUSE ) the batch programs are split in two parts

the MAIN program with all the I/O and environment related stuff

the DATA MANGLING part as an external subroutine with the <business process> only environment clean
and it can be used from any environment
