Thomas, others have addressed the syntactical part of your question, but
I have a stylistic suggestion. Rather than using variables x_yes and
x_no, I prefer to use constants:
dcl-c C_YES 'Y';
dcl-c C_NO 'N';
My own preference is to uppercase literals and precede them with C_;
that makes it very clear when I use a literal. Then I can write the
if xzstas <> C_YES and xsstas <> C_NO;
The code in the if will be executed if xzstas is anything other than 'Y'

How do I get x_yes set to 'Y' and x_no set to 'N';
Then I have the following if statement.
if xzstas <> x_yes or x_no;
xzstas is an alpha A1.
I am getting a RNF7421.
What is wrong with my operation? I am supposing the "<>" is not correct.
