    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: PL/I copy book DFHA17DS.P has an error  *
    *                      that results in the incorrect mapping   *
    *                      of all fields at or after A17POOL.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The definition of A17POOL in DFHA17DS.P of BIN FIXED(8) results
    in it being allocated 2 bytes instead of 1. This error also
    causes PL/I to insert an additional byte for alignment, and
    all fields from A17STRNO are defined at an offset that is two
    bytes further than is correct.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Definition for A17POOL in DFHA17DS.P has been corrected to
    reserve only 1 byte.
