Subject:      Re: reading members in PDS

I think your problem is the trailing @ You read again and again the same record. That's the use of the trailing @: read the record and keep it in buffer...

Somewhere in your code you must read the next record. Unfortunately the code below ends after keeping the record.

It could (should) be like:

INPUT @38 job_nmbr $char8. @65 job_name $char8. @76 test $char2. @; IF job_name =: 'AMBAM' then do; IF test = 'ST' then do; ..... input ... the rest of the record ...; end; end; else input; /* read the next record, because it was not the right one...*/

if you keep on reading the first record (only INPUTs with @) DONE will never become true.
