RESET #PROGRAM (A7)
MOVE ‘XXW1027XXV1015’ TO #A1
MOVE ‘XXV1015’ TO #PROGRAM
IF #MODULE-ARRAY() NE #PROGRAM
This is a reporting mode program and I want to check for a value in the array. Actually the display stmt should not be executed as the array contains the #program value.
Its actually getting executed because its checking only for the first occurence in the array (xxw1027) which is not equal to #program and hence executing the display stmt.Is there any other way of checking all the occurences in the array. I don’t want to use a “FOR” loop either.
Can someone help me in this?
However, if you simply want a yes/no answer to whether a value exists in a table, and, if this code will be executed a lot, you might want to work with the string #A1 rather than deal with the array #A2.
