This control enables users to specify a maximum error severity level beyond which BTEQ terminates job processing.
where the following is true:
- The error severity level at which BTEQ terminates.
If a BTEQ script contains an SQL statement that produces an error severity level greater than the designated MAXERROR value, BTEQ immediately aborts. Therefore, to have BTEQ exit on an error severity level of 8, set MaxErrorLevel to 7.
- End-of-file for the primary command input file
- A QUIT command
- A fatal error
- When BTEQ receives an I/O abend, system error messages appear in the z/OS JES job log.
- When BTEQ receives an I/O error or an abend, the IBM/C runtime library produces an LSCX message that might contain more information about the error.
