Taking that further, copy the spool file output from the query into a table
before it is turned into a PDF, and then query it or search it for the "no
records" message. If not found continue with the pdf and email processing.

Rob makes a good point about emails going missing though. I suspect it will
be better to email the no records report so people know the report was run.

Will Infoprint server allow you to do conditional processing? Like don't
send it on if it contains the text "No records"?

I don't know about any exit point processing, like Query Governor Exit
Program (QIBM_QQQ_QUERY_GOVR).

Jeff,

Agree, that could be done.

Thus far there is no coding involved.
Currently all achieved with configuration / combination of AJS, WRKQRY,
and InfoPrintServer PDFMAPE.

Paul,
What I do when I need to know if my query produced results first before
taking any other action is to run the query directed to an output file in
qtemp, then retrieve the number of current records in that file. If the
value is ZERO, I have no data and skip the rest of my processing.

From AJS, we email many spoolfiles, some generated by wrkqry.
We use InfoPrintServer (PDFMAPE) to auto email the spoolfile by
setting the spoolfile HOLD attribute to *NO.

If the query results in "No records in query report" , we do not want
to auto email the spoolfile.

Any of the below manual changes would stop this.
Is there an easy way to accomplish this automatically?

1) Set HOLD to *yes
2) Move spoolfile to different output.
3) Delete the spoolfile

Thank You
