Error description

  • In RDI 9.0.0.1, when editing RPGLE source, for an external DS
    definition in a subprocedure, the (RPGLE live) outline view
    does not show the subfields for the externally described DS. The
    problem appears to be caused by some seemingly unrelated DS
    declaration statements.
    
    Example:
    
          dcustomer       e ds                  qualified
    
         D DS2           E DS                  Qualified
    
          // Deleting this next line brings in the subproc ds
             subfields ...
         Dotherproc        pr                  likeDS( DS2)
                                                             lr
         c                   seton
         Pproc1          B
         dcustomer       e ds                  qualified
         P             E
