The single break function interrupts BTEQ while it is processing a previous request. It is generated either by pressing the break key or pressing the sequence of keys that unlocks the terminal. On receipt of a single break, BTEQ displays:

*** PA1 key hit! Enter 'ABORT' to abort current operation
*** or 'EXIT/QUIT' to abort transaction and exit BTEQ:

At the input command prompt, enter CONTINUE, ABORT, EXIT, or QUIT.

Enter CONTINUE to recover from the interrupt and resume BTEQ as if the interrupt never occurred.

Enter ABORT to abort the previous request.

Enter either EXIT or QUIT to abort the transaction and terminate BTEQ.
