The IGNORE CONDITION command causes no action to be taken if the specified condition occurs in the program. The control will be passed on to the instruction following the command which is encountered the exceptional condition.
The syntax is same as HANDLE CONDITION but it causes no action to be taken if the specified condition occurs in the program. The control will be returned to the next instruction following the command, which encountered the exceptional condition. It will be effective from the place where it appears to the end of the program or until any HANDLE condition overrides it.
Maximum 12 conditions can be coded in one IGNORE CONDITION statement.
EXEC CICS IGNORE CONDITION condition (condition) END-EXEC.
The “condition” indicates an exceptional condition. At the most, only 16 conditions are allowed in the same command.
Applies only to the program in which it is specified
Active while the program is being executed
Active until a HANDLE CONDITION command for the same condition is encountered
EXEC CICS IGNORE CONDITION LENGERR END-EXEC. EXEC CICS RECEIVE INTO (_______) LENGTH (____) END-EXEC.
At the execution of the RECEIVE command, if LENGERR exception occurs, the condition will be ignored, and the control will be passed to the statement after the RECEIVE command.
