suppressing the line number

suppressing the line number

can you suppress the line number on a "me; error (something is wrong)" on a copy from ispec?  sometimes when you display an error message on copy 1 or glb.maxcopy is confuses the user.


RE: suppressing the line number

Sorry but no.

RE: suppressing the line number

Avoid using ME; ERROR syntax. Set-up a Error-Flag and check in your logic for Error-Flag to display the appropriate error message you need.

Probably a Global Logic would Perform this.

Experiment and enlighten us.

RE: suppressing the line number

You may find it helpful to use the CU; command to position the cursor on the data item in error.  While this doesn't fix the line number it may reduce user confusion.

RE: suppressing the line number

as others have said. set cursor at error. before exiting store a status in Test of status at start of logic. If set then EE; thusly only have one error message. A bit messy but will work.

RE: suppressing the line number
