SKIP to field

Postby AriSilva » December 5th, 2018, 8:14 am

It seems that skipping to a field is not working in batch processing.
It does work as skip case, but skip to D06_RESULTADO (for example) does not work.
I did no see any mention to that in the skip documentation. What am I doing wrong?

By default, skips are ignored in batch applications. Skips are only processed when you run a Run as Batch style application:

Even in this case, the skip doesn't actually skip over fields, but it instead tells you whether or not the fields are blank (which is what they should be if they had been skipped).

In batch applications, you can use the universe statement as an easy way to skip processing of a PROC, though you may have to repeat that statement many times for each field that you want to skip over.
