Even if the program runs into the paragraph, it would
execute the else clause only if the test fails the
the if test.

That is the logical place to check the values.\

[COBOL400-L] CICS Problem

Please respond to

I'm a very new CICS programmer, and I'm running into
a problem.

I'm trying to compare two data items. Both are PIC
X(09). Both will
contain numbers, though.

At one point in the CICS program, I have:

IF ACEMPNOI = WS-COMM-BEGIN
NEXT SENTENCE
ELSE
PERFORM 1100-START-BROWSE THRU 1100-EXIT.

The problem is, the Else branch always triggers when
the program reaches
this statement, as though the two data values are
different, even when I
can
verify that they are not.

ACEMPNOI is the field that receives the account
number from the CICS map.
WS-COMM-BEGIN is the field in the DFHCOMMAREA that
contains the last
ACEMPNOI that was searched on. I save it to this
COMMAREA data item
whenever the program executes a successful STARTBR.

What am I doing wrong here?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Lora
