Bypass Action indicator

In T-TBLX-BYPASS-ACTION-IND (Table 83) you tell tablesONLINE/CICS what actions should be taken when the exit program returns to tablesONLINE/CICS.

Legal values are:

  • blank (OK)
  • E (Error)
  • W (Warning)
  • I (Information)
  • Y (Yes, bypass next tablesONLINE/CICS action).

The indicator is initialized to blank when the software enters the exit program. If exit program code sets up a message but does not set the T-TBLX-BYPASS-ACTION-IND parameter then the NORMAL-EXIT routine will move the TYPE from the message table into T-TBLX-BYPASS-ACTION-IND.

The Y code has unique uses for different indicator combinations, as it applies to the next action expected at various points in processing. This code should only be used as an explicit action code, not as a message TYPE.

The right hand column in Table 82 shows the action tablesONLINE/CICS will take if the exit program returns with the BYPASS-ACTION-IND set to blank (indicating normal completion) or to W or I (indicating that a Warning or an Information message has been generated by the exit program).
