Error description

  • Screen Designer in Rational Developer for I 9.1.0 may
    incorrectly populate the row and column position for a message
    field (type M in column 38).  This can happen when editing the
    DSPF source using the edit view to add source or if the Message
    field is selected in the outline view.
    

Local fix

  • To avoid the issue close the properties view before selecting
    the M field.
    
    If the position has been changed for the M field then manually
    remove the incorrect row and column values in the
    source view.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Displaying the properties for usage (M) field incorrectly    *
    * updates source.                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When editing an DSPF DDS member containing a message field, if
    the field is selected and its properties shown, then the field
    is given a position of 1 1 and the source is updated.  But M
    usage fields should not have a row, column position specified on
    its field specification.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.1.1 update to disable the
    direct edting of M usage field positions via the properties.
    Therefore the source will not be inadvertently updated.
