Hi!

 

after IF condition try to add GoBack.

 

but I would add a Flag indicator:

01 WS-if-correct-FLAG   PIC X VALUE ‘T’.

      88 WS-if-correct  Pic x value ‘t’.

      88 ws-if-correct-false pic x value ‘f’. 

 

Then after the if condition set this flag to true - SET WS-IF-CORRECT TO TRUE

And with others if condition check this flag. (If you are not using else) 

Hi guys, sorry for the late reply... been rather busy. I managed to fix it by using a GO TO which took me to the end of the section so that it would do not more processing.

I am trying to create a program but I am having difficulty with some logic. I am looking for a command that once a condition is met, it will then exit the section and carry on instead of going through the other IF statements. Example being:
