While reengineering a program, I created the following conditional statement: IF (WS-RISK-CODE = "FX" AND WS-ORDER-DOES-NOT-EXIST) <perform some statements> END-IF. The conditional statement was evaluated false during the program run even though WS-RISK-CODE equalled "FX" and WS-ORDER-DOES-NOT-EXIST was true. None of the statements to be performed were performed. I then removed the parentheses to result in the following: IF WS-RISK-CODE = "FX" AND WS-ORDER-DOES-NOT-EXIST <perform some statements> END-IF. This worked. I'm not sure I understand how the parentheses caused the problem. I assumed the order of evaluation within the parentheses would be the relational operator first and then the logical operator. Can someone explain it to me? Thanks, Kelly
