2. WAIT (1 byte)

  • Y—if tableBASE is to wait for tables which are enqueued
  • N—if tableBASE is not to wait for such enqueued tables. In this case tableBASE will Abend with a User 0072 if Abend processing is enabled, or will return an error code of 0072 if Abend processing has been disabled.
  • blank—if Wait handling is to remain as previously set
This switch should normally be set to N in online and multitasking environments. Otherwise, a long running batch update or tablesONLINE edit session may cause an online transaction to wait for an excessive period of time.
