Error description

  • When editing a DSPF source member with Screen Designer and one
    field in an absolute positioned record is changed to be relative
    positioning or a relative positioned field is added then the
    design page becomes inoperative.
    
    For example adding FIELD3 or changing FIELD3 from absolute to
    relative positioning will cause this problem:
    
         A          R RECORD1
         A            FIELD1         9   B  3 24
         A            FIELD2         9   B  4 24
         A            FIELD3         9   B   +02
    

Local fix

  • Save the changes, close then re-open Screen Designer
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users who work with absolutely positioned    *
    *                 PRTF records using Report Designer.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Report Designer becomes confused if a   *
    *                      relative field is inserted into an      *
    *                      absolute record.                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When an field with an absolute column position is converted
    to a relative column position through the checkbox in the
    properties view, it forgets its column position and is moved
    to be +1 of the previous field.
    
    This problem is fixed in RDi 9.0 so that after converting an
    absolute field to a relative one, it will appear at the same
    column.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
