This Job Script will describe and demonstrate how to validate the Numeric Integrity of Packed-Decimal fields. The test cases are used to identify possible S0C7 or RTS-173 errors (non-numeric value in a numeric field) that may cause an application program to abnormally terminate.


We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Job Flow Overview

The following describes the Job Scripts and Programs that are used to generate, transfer and compile a suite of programs that will accumulate Summary Totals and perform various types of numeric integrity checking and make optional adjustments to numeric values that are stored in a Packed-Decimal format.

1. Call a Job Script (NBRPK3W8.cmd) that will create the test data.
1.1. Map logical file names to physical location and file names for Data Create Job Step.
1.1.1. set SYSUT2=%BaseLib1%\DATA\APPL\SIMOTIME.DATA.NBRPK3D1.DAT
1.2. Map logical file names to physical location and file names for HEX-Dump Job Step.
1.2.1. set SYSUT1=%BaseLib1%\DATA\APPL\SIMOTIME.DATA.NBRPK3D1.DAT
1.2.2. set SYSUT2=%BaseLib1%\LOGS\SYSUT2_NBRPK3W8.txt
2. Execute Function Test 01, Do a basic validation of the packed-decimal, numeric values.
2.1. Call a Job Script (NBRPK3W1.cmd) that will accumulate summary totals.
2.2. Map logical file names to physical location and file names.
2.2.1. set SYSUT1=%BaseLib1%\DATA\APPL\SIMOTIME.DATA.NBRPK3D1.DAT
2.2.2. set SYSOUT=%BaseLib1%\LOGS\SYSOUT_%CmdName%.TXT
2.3. Accumulate Summary Totals without making adjustments or changes to the numeric values.
3. Execute Function Test 02, Do a validation of the packed-decimal, numeric values.
3.1. Call a Job Script (NBRPK3W2.cmd) that will accumulate summary totals and test for space characters.
3.1.1. set SYSUT1=%BaseLib1%\DATA\APPL\SIMOTIME.DATA.NBRPK3D1.DAT
3.1.2. set SYSOUT=%BaseLib1%\LOGS\SYSOUT_%CmdName%.TXT
3.2. Accumulate Summary Totals and make adjustments to numeric values that contain all space characters.
3.3. The adjustments are used for accumulating totals and the original file is not updated.
4. Execute Function Test 03, Do a validation and file update of the packed-decimal, numeric values.
4.1. Call a Job Script (NBRPK3W3.cmd) that will accumulate summary totals and test for space characters.
4.1.1. set SYSUT1=%BaseLib1%\DATA\APPL\SIMOTIME.DATA.NBRPK3D1.DAT
4.1.2. set SYSOUT=%BaseLib1%\LOGS\SYSOUT_%CmdName%.TXT
4.2. Accumulate Summary Totals and make corrections to numeric values that contain all space characters.
4.3. Update the file by changing the space values to zeroes.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Function Testing

The following is an overview of the function tests that are performed by this Job Script.

1. Check for valid numeric values and accumulate summary totals.
2. Check for space characters and adjust to zero value before accumulating summary totals.
3. Check for space characters and correct to zero value with update to file before accumulating summary totals.

Note: The following link will describe a suite of job scripts that may be used for Unit Testing and may be executed on demand.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore how to process non-Numeric Values stored in a Packed-Decimal format. This document will use examples to show how to manage a situation where non-numeric values (such as Space Characters) are placed in a Packed-Decimal field and then managed to avoid a S0C7 or RTS 163 error message and an abnormal termination of the program.

The following provides additional detail about each of the function tests that are performed by this Job Script.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Numeric Check & Summary Totals

This function test will process the test file and accumulate summary totals. A simple numeric check is done before a numeric field is used in a calculation. If the numeric test fails the value is not used in the calculation.

This function test will process the test file and accumulate summary totals. If a numeric field contains all space characters the value is not used in the calculation. A summary total of records containing space characters will be accumulated. The field value will be converted to a zero value and the test file will be updated. the accumulated summary totals will be displayed during the processing for End of Job.

Note: When EBCDIC encoded data files are transferred from an IBM Mainframe System and converted to use ASCII encoding then additional effort may be required to validate the integrity of numeric values. SimoTime provides expertise and services to assist in this effort.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Create Test Data

This section describes the Job Scripts that are used to create the test data. The test data is a record sequential file of 80-byte fixed-length records. Each record contains a record ID field and four (4) numeric fields in packed-decimal (COMP-3) format. Some of the packed fields will contain space characters that are invalid and will cause a SOC7 error (non-numeric in numeric field) message. The purpose of this example is to process packed-decimal fields that contain space characters or invalid values.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
