REJECT

REJECT Syntax Diagram

Variants:

1. REJECT.
2. REJECT dbtab.

Effect

Stops processing the current database table line and resumes with the next line of the table on the same hierarchy level. Unlike the CHECK statement, you can also use REJECT within a subroutine or loop for table selection.

Effect

Similar to variant 1. In this case, however, dbtab is a table from the database hierarchy on a level no deeper than the current database table. Processing continues by reading the next record of the table dbtab.

Note

Runtime errors:

REJECT_TABLE_NOT_FOUND: THe table whose name is in the field dbtab is not active, that is, it is not in the current table in the database hierarchy. You can therefore not continue processing the next record in this table.

Example

Logical database F1S
Hierarchy: SPFLI -> SFLIGHT -> SBOOK

TABLES: SFLIGHT, 
		SBOOK. 
 
GET SFLIGHT. 
	... 
GET SBOOK. 
	... 
	REJECT 'SFLIGHT'. 
	...

REJECT cancels processing of the event 'GET SBOOK' and resumes with the processing of the event 'GET SFLIGHT'.

Note

The name of the subroutine containing the "PUT dbtab" statement must begin with PUT_dbtab.
