Hi All,

this is my first post in this forum.

Here is my question below..

I need help with using WHEN command in Xpeditor. I'm trying to read a value from database which is of 1000+ records, I need to xped the program to stop the control when a specific value is met.

For e.g I need to stop the pgm control when ABC = 1000.
but here is my pblm, I have ABC coded in 2 different copybooks,

ABC OF ABCDEFGHIJKLMN & ABC OF ZXCBHHUILLLLKJHHHE

when I try to peform WHEN operation for ABC, I'm getting "DUPLICATE DATA NAME, QUALIFICATION IS REQUIRED"

So, If I decide to use ABC OF ABCDEFGHIJKLMN = '1000' it exceeds the window length. is there a way to increase the command line scroll length?

or how can I specify the correct variable in the when command?

From the Fine Manual:
Quote:
The primary command area can be extended up to three lines by using the SET CMDSIZE command. The previous primary command can be recalled by entering a question mark (?).

Glad to hear it worked.

And I go by "Robert", not "Rob".
