Reply with quote

Hi all,

I have an requirement in which i have to read a file based on value from the screen. If the value in screen is '1' i have to read file 'FILEA', If the value is '2', i have to read file 'FILEB' ..... There are 6 such files.

I tried moving the file name based on the condition and then read it. But it abbended. Can u please help me in this. Please let me know if we can pass the ddname dynamically?

Approach i tried:

If value = '1'
move 'FILEA' to ws-dd-name
else
if value = '2'
move 'FILEB' to ws-dd-name
else
....
ENd-if.

EXEC CICS STARTBR DATASET ('ws-dd-name')
RIDFLD (KEY)
GTEQ
END-EXEC.


Thanks in advance

You don't use quotes around a variable name. Try
Code:
EXEC CICS STARTBR DATASET (ws-dd-name)
RIDFLD (KEY)
GTEQ
END-EXEC.
