"Error in script line: endsub" - no idea - help plz


Hi,

I have worked with subroutines a few times, but not often. Usually I had to pass only one parameter to the subroutine. This is the first intance where I have to pass two:

- A full path (with a lot of \ - I enclose that in square brackets to be sure)

- An ending.

Everything is in place. I use a command like that

>> sub Dateicheck ($(v_checkfolder), $(v_ending)) <<

>> endsub; <<

>> CALL Dateicheck ($(v_folder_to_check), $(v_ending_to_check)); <<

But I keep getting an error_message "error in script line: endsub". I have already tried some variations on this, but I guess the error lies elsewhere. Maybe in the opening sub statement? (I tried without the $() before because it's without in my other subroutines, too, but that didn't work)

Can someone help me here? I am Flasche leer;

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,

DataNibbler

It's quite difficult to find here the syntax issue's. The easiest way is most to run this step by step within the debugger.

I would as next remove the chr(39) wrapping from v_folder_to_check or call these variable within the call-statement without the single-quotes then they could be double which then led to an error.

Further I don't understand the sub from text-file. You made a join without a common field and the check to "Aktuell" could be done within the first load.

Hi DataNibbler,

try this:

sub Dateicheck (p1, p2)

// do something

end sub


CALL Dateicheck ($(v_folder_to_check), $(v_ending_to_check))

Hi Marcus,

so what exactly is it you are proposing? Just replace the parameter_names? And using > end sub < without a semicolon?

I'll try.

P.S.: Nope - that makes no difference. I still get the message "error in script line: end sub"

I guess the real error must lie somewhere else. There is simply no space for errors among those two little words ...

Re: "Error in script line: endsub" - no idea - help plz

Hi DataNibbler,

yes this was meant and if the variables contained strings they will need additional single-quotes: '$(var)'

Hi Marcus,

quotes - in the CALL_statement or in the opening > sub <?

Re: "Error in script line: endsub" - no idea - help plz

This was meant within the call-statement.

Okay -

now I have

- >> sub Dateicheck($(p1), $(p2)) <<

- >> end sub <<

- >> CALL Dateicheck ('$(v_folder_to_check)', '$(v_ending_to_check)'); <<

... now I am again getting the message "error in script line: end sub"

How looks the content from the variables?

Hi,

one of the variables is a full file_path like

>> \\blabla\suffsuff\QlikView\99_ReportToMail\02_Output <<

The other is a file_ending (to identify the ending of the files which should be created by RtM), e.g. pdf or xls

Re: "Error in script line: endsub" - no idea - help plz

Then it should work with:

let var = '\\blabla\suffsuff\QlikView\99_ReportToMail\02_Output';

then '$(var)' meant now the same syntax as if you had put the string directly in the call-statement. But your sub contained a $(p1) and $(p2) - use here only p1 and p2. Most often a sub looks in my case so:

sub Dateicheck (v_folder_to_check, v_ending_to_check)

// do something

end sub

CALL Dateicheck (p1, p2)
