Error description

  • When editing a DSPF source member using Screen Designer in
    Rational Developer for i (RDI) 9.6.0.4, and examining a field
    with a REFFLD() attribute, the Properties view can display an
    incorrect value for the referenced field. This can occur when
    the correct name for the referenced field can be found as a
    subset of another field name in the referenced file record
    format.
    
    For example, if the referenced file has fields ABC and ZABC2,
    then REFFLD(ABC) may incorrectly show the reference as ZABC2 in
    the Properties view.
    

Local fix

  • In the workspace preferences navigate to panel Remote Systems >
    IBM I > Cache  then enable the checkbox for the option "Disable
    caching".
