This statement has no parameters.
The XML DISABLE ALL-OCCURRENCES statement causes unnecessary empty array (COBOL table) occurrences not to be generated by the statements, XML EXPORT FILE and XML EXPORT TEXT. An empty array is one in which all numeric elements have a zero value and all nonnumeric elements have a value of all spaces.
There is some interoperation with the statements, XML DISABLE ATTRIBUTES and XML ENABLE ATTRIBUTES. If attributes are enabled (that is, XML ENABLE ATTRIBUTES has been called), then all empty occurrences are not generated. If attributes are disabled (the default state or if XML DISABLE ATTRIBUTES has been used), then all trailing empty occurrences are not generated. If attributes are enabled, then the subscript is present and so leading, or intermediate, empty occurrences are not needed as placeholders to ensure that the correct subscript is calculated.
A status value is returned in the data item XML-data-group, which is defined in the copybook, lixmldef.cpy.
XML DISABLE ALL-OCCURRENCES. IF NOT XML-OK GO TO Z.
