APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When RDI is used to open a DSPF DDS source member that contains
    a field with a length modifier such as +1 on a field where the
    base field length defined by a referenced field the length
    modifier is removed.  There is no error indication or message
    saying that the affected field(s) have been changed.
    
    RDI should not remove the length modifier automatically
    

Local fix

  • Manually replace any removed length modifiers
