I need help for a simple problem...

Postby CMHOUSE2010 » Wed Nov 26, 2008 11:09 am

Hi!
I am working on a program called lookup and I have one error i cannot solve.

Here is the paragraph...
 001101  450-LOOKUP.
 001102      MOVE 1 TO HOLD-SUB
 001103      PERFORM
 001104          UNTIL HOLD-SUB > 8 OR LOOKUP-FLAG = 'YES'
 001105            IF DIV-MANAGER(HOLD-SUB) = HOLD-DIV
 001106                MOVE HOLD-DIV TO HEAD-CENTER
 001107                MOVE DIV-NAME(HOLD-SUB) TO HEAD-NAME
 001108                MOVE 9 TO HOLD-SUB
 001109            END-IF
 001110      END-PERFORM.

This is the error

   001101 450-LOOKUP.
   000247         001102     MOVE 1 TO HOLD-SUB
   000248         001103     PERFORM
   000249         001104         UNTIL HOLD-SUB > 8 OR LOOKUP-FLAG = 'YES'
   000250      1  001105           IF DIV-TABLE(HOLD-SUB) = HOLD-DIV

==000250==> IGYPS2120-S Expected a reference-modification specification but found ')' the IF
statement was discarded.

   000251      2  001106               MOVE HOLD-DIV TO HEAD-CENTER
   000252      2  001107               MOVE DIV-NAME(HOLD-SUB) TO HEAD-NAME
   000253      2  001108               MOVE 9 TO HOLD-SUB
   000254      1  001109           END-IF
   000255         001110     END-PERFORM.

Somebody tell me what am I doing wrong.

PS: Sorry how do you get the the print screen function to work?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Sorry how do you get the the print screen function to work?
Do you mean to print on paper or to capture info to post here? If you want to post the content of part or all of a screen, it is best to use copy/paste and then use the "Code" tag (i've coded your initial post as a demonstration. To use the cCde tag, highlight the code and click Code (near the top of the Reply panel. You can also Preview to see how yor post will appear to the forum. When you are satisfied with how your post looks, click Submit.

You have 2 sets of the 450-lookup para. One says this: IF DIV-MANAGER(HOLD-SUB) = HOLD-DIV
the other says: IF DIV-TABLE(HOLD-SUB) = HOLD-DIV .
Is this as you intended or did something happen when the code was posted to the forum.

It may help if you post the data division code for DIV-MANAGER and DIV-TABLE.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Whoops! sorry about that! I must have pulled from the wrong output file.
So lets start over. I have this paragraph

001101 450-LOOKUP.
001102 MOVE 1 TO HOLD-SUB
001103 PERFORM
001104 UNTIL HOLD-SUB > 8 OR LOOKUP-FLAG = 'YES'
001105 IF DIV-MANAGER(HOLD-SUB) = HOLD-DIV
001106 MOVE HOLD-DIV TO HEAD-CENTER
001107 MOVE DIV-NAME(HOLD-SUB) TO HEAD-NAME
001108 MOVE 9 TO HOLD-SUB
001109 END-IF
001110 END-PERFORM.

Everytime I compile, it throws an error stating that "IGYPS2120-S Expected a reference-modification specification but found ')' the IF
statement was discarded. "

I still cannot see what is wrong with this.

Hello,

Without seeing the definitions, i can only guess that you have specified (hold-sub) on a field that is not within an occurs.
Hope this helps,

Soo... does this work for you?

Hello,

Please review the code you posted and fix the inconsistencies. Also, practice using the Code tag to preserve the alignment of your posts.

You have done what i suspected when i posted the earlier reply. You have coded a subscript on a field that has only a single occurrence. You have coded no subscript on a field that is part of an occurs and requires asubscript.

DIV-MANAGER(HOLD-SUB) - div-manager is the level 01 and occurs 1 time - why is there a subscript? HEAD-NAME is in the aray and references to it require a subscript. The code has none.

Given that the array redefnies the individual values, you will not need/want to move the way you have. You will just reference the entry at the proper displacement.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
