Error description

  • The RPG Outline view incorrectly reports the field size as zero
    for a field defined with CHAR(%LEN(FLD2), when FLD2 is defined
    with LIKE(FLD1).
    
    The outline view incorrectly reports CHAR(0) for FLD3:
    
          dcl-s FLD1 char(15);
          dcl-s FLD2 like(FLD1);
          dcl-s FLD3 char(%len(FLD2));
