Error description

  • Rational Developer for i Systems (RDI) Source Prompter view
    for RPGLE programs is not updating the output Line type for
    Output:FieldDescription.  It works correctly in Rational
    Developer for Power systems (RDp) v8.5.
    
    In QSYS.LIB/Blah.LIB/QRPGLESRC.FILE/ORDENTR.RPGLE I added these
    3 lines:
         O          E            Test        1
         O                       TEST2         Z      4
         O                                           +2 'test'
    In RDp v8.5 when the Source prompter view opened and I
    click from line to line it will automatically detect the correct
    type of Output: Field Description, or Output: Record
    Description.
    However, in RDi v9.0.1, it does not detect the type of Output:
    Field Description.  If I scroll down from the first line to the
    second line it stays as Record Description, although in the LPEX
    Editor the format line correctly changes to Field Description.
    

Local fix

  • Choose the correct OUTPUT type from the dropdown list.
