SET STOP ERRORS

Halts the execution of an application program if an error occurs.

Syntax

SET STOP ERRORS ON|OFF

Comments

The STOP ERRORS option is OFF by default.

When STOP ERRORS is switched ON, execution is halted (by the HALT utility) when an error occurs. To resume execution after the HALT, press Enter at the HALT prompt (>>).

Compiled application programs are not affected by SET STOP ERRORS.

The ET STOP ERRORS command is not affected by the SET RESET and SET RESTORE commands.

Example

> set stop errors on
 :
> list all test
procedure test (p_OwnerName)
 report from Fields where OwnerName = p_OwnerName % Spelling error
  ... body of report ...
 endreport
endprocedure
> test
*** Error *** ...
>>

The HALT command is executed when the execution of test results in an error. (The name of the EntitySet Fields is misspelled in the body of the procedure.)
