IFTHEN - syntax error

Postby knobi » Tue Oct 05, 2021 3:45 am

Good afternoon !
I'm having issues with the sort below, where :
- The 1st IFTHEN add a column that applies to all entries.
- The 2nd IFTHEN add a second column that applies to all entries (except the first line).
- The 3rd IFTHEN would add a third column which would apply to several groups of records. but the job fails on this statement with syntax error.

Could you please help me to understand how to add the 3rd IFTHEN statement ?

works fine :

//CTL1CNTL DD *  
 INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,                
               OVERLAY=(90:SEQNUM,8,ZD)),          

       IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,BEGIN=(23,03,SS,EQ,C'ID='),
               PUSH=(99:26,04))
 


fails with syntax error :

//CTL1CNTL DD *
INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,
              OVERLAY=(90:SEQNUM,8,ZD)),

      IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,BEGIN=(23,03,SS,EQ,C'ID='),              
              PUSH=(99:26,04)),          

      IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,BEGIN=(01,20,SS,EQ,C'ABCABC ABC ABC21'),                
              END=(03,15,SS,EQ,C'ABCAAW-CASC'),                
              PUSH=(105:C'AEDX AXC'))

What is the error message?
What does it say?
What is the error position marked with '*' in the listing?
What is the whole JCL, and all control statements used by your ICETOOL step?

If you really need help, this is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to provide as much useful info as possible.
We all are not very interested in pulling the information from you.
Javas come and go, but JCL stays forever.
