Exploiting Condition Handling in LE

Forum/discussion group


Presentation material for SHARE session 1540.


Learn how to write COBOL programs that can recover from bad data ABENDS and continue on while saving the bad data to be processed later. You will now be able to solve that age-old problem of the batch job that fails while processing the millionth record and must be completely rerun after the offending record is removed. There will be coding examples with tips for best practices! While the examples will all be COBOL, the concepts are equally applicable to any LE conforming language.
