Hi,

In our application programs, the ENDBR is always accompanied with NOHANDLE condition.

I am not sure why NOHANDLE is used.

Can there be some error while ENDBR?

Basically, in your example, an ENDBR with a NOHANDLE or a RESP indicates that the programmer didn't care about the ENDBR outcome, unless EIBRESP is tested for a ZERO or non-ZERO value.

Many times, an ENDBR is issued as a fail-safe prior to issuing a STARTBR.

Bill,
I follow you 'failsafe' logic - that insures that there are no active BROWSEs.
but I thought that a NOHANDLE (or RESP) effectively turned-off
any active HANDLEs in the module.

Hi Dick,

Yes, but only for the API where the NOHANDLE is specified.
