APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When adding a procedure parameter using the RPG Procedure
    Wizard, the name in the 'Defined like' field is not allowed to
    contain '.' so no qualified names can be used.
    
    When '.' is used, the error returned from the RPG Procedure
    wizard is "...invalid file name".
    
    This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.5.0.3 update.
    

Local fix

  • Edit the LIKE keyword parameter after generating the procedure.
