I am running a procedure that prompts for a variable and if the user enters the wrong format I get error code FOC006 followed by FOC009. I want to test only for FOC006 but the code below displays only 9 - the second of 2 errors.

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT SEG.MODEL
BY COUNTRY BY CAR BY SEATS
IF SEATS EQ '&SEATS.EVAL'
END
-RUN
-TYPE WEBFOCUS ERROR NO. = &FOCERRNUM


ERROR AT OR NEAR LINE 5 IN PROCEDURE Procedure1.fexFOCEXEC *
(FOC006) THE FORMAT OF THE TEST VALUE IS INCONSISTENT WITH FIELD FORMAT: xxx
BYPASSING TO END OF COMMAND
(FOC009) INCOMPLETE REQUEST STATEMENT
WEBFOCUS ERROR NO. = 9

This might not apply to your specific use case but what if you checked for valid numbers instead so you don't even get an error?
  
-IF PATTERNS(&SEATS) NE 9 OR 99 THEN GOTO ERR_MSG
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT SEG.MODEL
BY COUNTRY BY CAR BY SEATS
WHERE SEATS EQ &SEATS
END
-RUN
-EXIT
-ERR_MSG
-TYPE YOU ENTERED AN INVALID VALUE.

Thanks for the suggestion but actually my prompted field is a date and I know I can check its syntax but was just wanting to capture the correct error number.

Ian

Unfortunately that variable is always the last error number that occurred even though it may not be the one you want to capture.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
