Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz
    COBOL code that has a SQL execs done in an If-then-else and the
    SQLCODE is checked after the if-then-else segment then it may
    be flagged as a coding error based on the software anaylzer
    rule:
    
    EXEC SQL: Check the value of SQLCODE after an EXEC SQL statement
    
    
    This rule is in the COBOL Code Review > Program Structures.
    
    For example, the following code will cause a both SQL Exec
    lines to be flagged:
               IF EMPNO OF INPUT-PARMS = " "
               THEN
                 EXEC SQL
                   SELECT EMPNO, FIRSTNME, LASTNAME
                   FROM DSN8910.EMP
                   WHERE SEX = 'F'
                 END-EXEC
              ELSE
                 EXEC SQL
                   SELECT EMPNO, FIRSTNME, LASTNAME
                   FROM DSN8910.EMP
                   WHERE SEX = 'M'
                 END-EXEC
              End-IF
    
              EVALUATE SQLCODE
              WHEN 0
                   DISPLAY "SQLCODE = 0"
              WHEN 100
                    DISPLAY "SQLCODE = 100"
              WHEN OTHER
                    DISPLAY "SQLCODE = Other"
              END-EVALUATE
