REJECT [node]. 


... node


The statement END-OF-SELECTION is only intended for use in executable programs that are associated with a logical database. It exits the current GET event block of an executable program. If you do not specify node, any nodes that are at a lower level in the hierarchical structure of the associated logical database are no longer processed. The logical database reads the next line of the current node or next higher node, if it has reached the end of the hierarchy level.

The REJECT statement always refers to the current GET event, not to the location where it is specified. If you call a procedure in a GET event block, and the REJECT statement is executed there, the calling event block is affected.


  • You cannot use REJECT in methods. Also, we do not recommend using REJECT in processing blocks other than in GET event blocks. Runtime errors can occur if the processing blocks are not executed in the correct context.
  • If logical databases are no longer used, then you no longer need to use the statement REJECT either.


... node


You can specify node as flat, character-like data object. When the statement is executed, the object must contain the name of a node that lies above the current node in the logical database hierarchy. If you specify node, the logical database reads the next data record of the corresponding node.


Exits the event block GET sbook and branches to the event GET sflight after the interface work area sbook is output for the first time.

NODES: sflight, sbook. 
GET sflight. 
  WRITE: / 'Carrid:', sflight-carrid, 
           'Connid:', sflight-connid, 
           'Fldate:', sflight-fldate. 
GET sbook. 
  WRITE: / 'Bookid:', sbook-bookid. 


Non-Catchable Exceptions

  • Cause: The table whose name is in the field dbtab is not active. This means that the table does not lie above the current table in the database hierarchy. Therefore, the processing cannot continue with the next data record of this table.
