Error description

  • When editing CL source, and using the F4 key to prompt a PARM
    statement, the CL Prompt dialog for the statement shows an error
     message when it shouldn't.
    This occurs for a PARM statment which has a VALUES() parameter
    with a first value of a space in quotes.  (It may be a list of
    values).
    
    Here is an example:
       PARM     ...    VALUES(   ' '    'X'   )
    

Local fix

  • Move ' ' from the first value postion as shown below:
    
    PARM       KWD(DATESE3) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(1) RSTD(*YES) +
               VALUES('-' ' ' '/' '.')  PROMPT('Date separator')
