Error conditions

An error condition results from entering an invalid value in an entry area. For example, typing YO in the OUTLINE field on FORM.OPTIONS results in an error because YO is not an allowed value for the entry area.

An error can also occur if there is a conflict that prevents the report from being displayed. For example, SUM is a valid entry for USAGE on a numeric column. However, SUM produces an error if entered for a column with character data.

You must correct errors before the report can be displayed using the form. However, you can save, import, export, display, and print forms that contain errors.

After you correct errors, QMF identifies any warning conditions.
