Catch error and RETRY? How?

I have an MQT.
I need to execute ........... REFRESH TABLE MyLIB.MyMQT
If a client application "HAPPENS" to be accessing the same MQT ... I get error

SQL State: 57033
Vendor Code: -913
Message: [SQL0913] Row or object IPCUTMQ0 in CSIDEV type *FILE in use. Cause . . . . . :   The requested object IPCUTMQ0 in CSIDEV type *FILE is either in use by another application process or a row in the object is in use by either another application process or another cursor in this application process.

How would I write a SQL script to capture the error and re-try the REFRESH TABLE MyLIB.MyMQT again?
Maybe even keep trying for 1 minute or 5 attempts or some such repeat threshold?

you just need to perform a simple loop
for example

while (SQLCODE<>0) DO
    refresh table...
end while

but note that this might get you into an infinite loop if you get some kind of error that can not be fixed for example if you wrote a wrong mqt name, the mqt is invalid etc...
maybe you should modify it to SQLCODE <> -913

@Momi - something like this .... right?

---------------------------------
    DECLARE SQLCODE INTEGER DEFAULT 0;
    DECLARE TRYS INTEGER DEFAULT 0;
    SET TRYS = 4;
    WHILE TRYS > 0 DO
        REFRESH TABLE MyLib.MyMQT ;
        IF ((SQLCODE = 0) OR (SQLCODE>0 and SQLCODE <> 100)) THEN
            SET TRYS = 0;
        ELSE
            SET TRYS = TRYS - 1;
        END IF;
    END WHILE;

Criteria used was based on documentation which says .....

The SQLCODE is also set by the database manager after each SQL statement is executed as follows:
- If SQLCODE = 0 and SQLWARN0 is blank, execution was successful.
- If SQLCODE = 100, no data was found. For example, a FETCH statement returned no data, because the cursor was positioned after the last row of the result table.
- If SQLCODE > 0 and not = 100, execution was successful with a warning.
- If SQLCODE = 0 and SQLWARN0 = 'W', execution was successful with a warning.
- If SQLCODE < 0, execution was not successful.

your code looks fine (assuming there are no warning you need to consider)
