Purpose

This control enables users to specify whether a REPEAT operation should terminate if an error occurs for a request that indicates the request cannot be re-tried.

If the REPEATSTOP command has not been used, its value is OFF by default. If the command is specified, but neither ON or OFF is set, BTEQ sets REPEATSTOP to ON.

Syntax



where the following is true:

OFF
If an error occurs for a request that indicates the request cannot be re-tried, the database rolls back the current transaction and BTEQ continues importing by submitting the next request.

This is the default.

ON
BTEQ terminates the REPEAT operation if an error occurs for a request that indicates the request cannot be re-tried.

Example – REPEATSTOP

.SET REPEATSTOP ON;
