Google is your friend. Googling easytrieve file status returned, among the 11,100 results, a web page with this:
For Normal Files,
FILE-STATUS = 0 means, Successful GET or PUT or READ or WRITE operation.

GET INFILE
IF INFILE:FILE-STATUS NE 0
DISPLAY 'ERROR IN READING FILE'
END-IF

End of a File can be identified using EOF keyword.
i.e,

IF EOF INFILE
DISPLAY 'END OF FILE'
END-IF

In case of a VSAM file, FILE-STATUS can mean any of the following
FILE-STATUS Meaning
0 Successful operation
4 End of File
8 Duplicate key during a Write/PUT (or)

Additional records with the same key exist in the

alternate index during a GET operation
12 Keys not in Sequence during PUT/WRITE
16 Record not found during READ
Since you are NOT explicitly using GET / READ / PUT / WRITE I suspect you won't be able to use the FILE-STATUS

Unless you use "STATUS" on the IO operation, you cannot get a "status". So, as Robert suspects, you can't get it on a JOB INPUT ... (Easytrieve Plus will automatically fail if anything really bad happens, you don't need to check it yourself).

Also, they cannot be used except for a limited type of "file". Realistically, these days, that means VSAM, SQL and IMS/DLI.

If you are doing GET processing of a "flat" file, again Easytrieve Plus will automatically fail if anything is discovered to be badly wrong.
