Hi All,

First of all thank you very much for all your support.

Currently, I have a scenario like, I have coded 6 JOB statements in an Easytrieve program.

Now my question is first JOB will create an output file, if the output file is empty I do not want to execute subsequent JOBs rather I want to exit from the program with NON zero return code.

Is there anyway to achieve this in Easytrieve?

Thanks for you kind help.

Thanks,
Sati

Look at the details of the STOP statement in your manual. Search/try the index for RETURN-CODE.

This should get it for you, let us know. Please post your solution to assist others in the future.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for you quick reply.

I tried STOP but it is stopping the first job and is executing the next subsequent jobs also.

Here I am stuck...

Thanks,
Sati

I didn't suggest you try STOP, I suggested you look in the manual.

If you do that, you'll find out about the full operation of STOP, including "STOP EXECUTE".

Hi Bill,

I used the STOP EXECUTE and it is working perfectly.

Thanks a lot.


Thanks,
Sati

No problem, thanks for the feedback.

Next time, read all the words in any response you get, and attempt the suggestions made (assuming they seem reasonable) :-)
