  KEY       CHAINFILEXXX              90

  *IN90     DOWEQ*OFF
  XXCODE    ANDNE'B'

  XXCODE    IFEQ 'A'
            ITER
            ENDIF

 <.... whatever process ....>

  KEY       READEFILEXXX                  90
            ENDDO

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if XXCODE='A', aren't you in an
infinite loop?

And just to stir up trouble, I'll throw in the following that I
use in certain circumstances:

   KEY       CHAINFILEXXX              90

  *IN90     DOWEQ*OFF
  XXCODE    ANDNE'B'

  XXCODE    CABEQ'A'     NXTRCD
  
 <.... whatever process ....>

  NXTRCD    TAG
  KEY       READEFILEXXX                  90
            ENDDO

Just could not resist throwing my two cents worth in on this one.  I'm
new to the mailing list; subscribed on the advice of Charlie Massoglia
after attending one of his excellent seminars.  The rewards have been
well worth the time expended.
