SELECT
  WHEN SYSID = "" THEN SAY "PLEASE ENTER ID"
  OTHERWISE CALL PROCESS VAR2,VAR3
  SAY 'NAMEX :'||VAR2
  SAY 'NAMEY :'||VAR3
END


Does that work? I do not believe it will work because the CALL and SAY statements should be grouped by DO / END.

Does work, IIRC. There is no need for a DO on an OTHERWISE - anything after the OTHERWISE is considered a statement block terminate by the END of the SELECT. Surprised me when I found it (I think in TRL2).
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
