HOW TO USE IF-ELSE STATEMENT IN FOCUS
Hi;

Here is my attempt:

DEFINE TABLE MYTABLE
..
..
IF 0 THEN
MYLINE1/A225='ORG1 ORG2 '|
'ORG3 ORG4';
ELSE
MYLINE1/A225='NEW1 NEW2 '|
'NEW3 NEW4';

END

but it throws me a syntax error. Any sugguestion?
Note: I put zero as condition coz I want to test if it goes to else part

waiting for help,

Try this:

DEFINE FILE MYTABLE
MYLINE/A225 = IF 1 EQ 0 THEN 'ORG1 ORG2 '| 'ORG3 ORG4'
ELSE 'NEW1 NEW2 '| 'NEW3 NEW4';
END
