Hello.

I have two files that I use Eztrieve to check the month and year in each files' header record. If the dates are the same, I write to one file if the dates are not the same I write to two files. Is there a way to set a condition code that I can use in the next step to uncatalog or catalog a file?

Thanks,
George

Have you looked in the manual?

Hello,

Did you find RETURN-CODE?

Is there still a question?

I am trying to use RETURN-CODE, however, it is giving me strange results.
If the file do not match I mover +0900 to RETURN-CODE.
When I look at the COND CODE in the executed jcl, it shows 2544.
When I display RETURN-CODE in the Easytrieve program, it displays as 1324415472.

Thanks,
George

Since a return code is a value in the range 0 to 4095, if you take 1324415472 modulo 4096, you get 2544 -- hence the return code 2544. Where the 1324415472 came from, I'm not sure -- the hexadecimal value is 4EF0F9F0

When you say move, do you mean MOVE?

I've never done that. Try with an assignment instead, please.

Yes. As in MOVE +900 to RETURN-CODE.

Is not the EBCDIC glyph for 4E is a plus sign? It sounds as if Mr. Tillmon is moving a character string to a binary word.

Akatsukami, I didn't think of that -- and with a typo, +090 (character) would be the mysterious value ....

I moved 0900 to RETURN-CODE and the COND CODE was 0240.

An assignment (=) is like a Cobol move. A MOVE is like an Assembler MVC/MVCL.

Confusing, but it's in the manual.

Use assign, except for files and when you need to do an MVC/MVCL type thing.

Also, when DISPLAYing for any investigative purpose, the DISPLAY HEX should be preferred. You'd have seen +090 (with the last zero chopped, as it got MOVEd to a four-byte field) and got a bit of a hint.
