TBLBASE processing errors

TBLBASE processing errors are errors detected within TBLBASE, the application programming interface to tableBASE. See the tableBASE Programming Guide for detailed information about TBLBASE.


Examples of a TBLBASE processing errors are:

  • invalid key size
  • invalid password

When a TBLBASE processing error occurs, an error message is printed along with an interpretation of the error code set by TBLBASE. Processing resumes with the next command sequence. A list of all error codes is found in the tableBASE Programming Guide.

While TBEXEC executes in an environment, the step return code is set to 16 if an error is encountered during interpretation or execution of any command sequence. A return code of zero means all command sequences have been processed successfully.
