Booth,

Are you using user controlled open to control the opening of the display
file so that the program doesn't open it if you are running in batch? I've
never used a program in batch that has a display file but it seems like if
you don't open it, it should work. Just a thought.

Subject: display screen in a program, but not used when program called
from batch


I've written an RPGIV program that uses a display file to get information
if the information is missing from a record.

In one circumstance I wish to schedule the job to run in batch at night. I
have already ensured the information is not missing, so the display file
will not be needed.   However the batch job fails anyway.

Is that what is supposed to happen, or is there another error I am not
finding?

Is there a way to resolve this issue without writing a second identical
program sans display?

Thank you for your ideas, they are always welcome.
