    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Entry fields on the CL Prompt dialog    *
    *                      were not long enough to allow special   *
    *                      values.                                 *

    ****************************************************************
    This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.0.1 update.
    
    The combo box entry for a parameter on the CL Prompt dialog
    was not allowing longer values.  This occurred for a parameter
    defined as a hex data type which had special values defined
    for it which converted to hex constant values.  The entry
    prompt only allowed a length for the hex length; not the
    special value(s) text length.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
