Error description

  • Editing ILE RPG with the Remote Systems LPEX Editor in Rational
    Developer for i (RDI) 9.6.0.6, the syntax checker may
    incorrectly issue error message RNF0306, indicating that a Time
    literal is invalid.
    
    For example, if you change the following statement in the
    editor:
       Dcl-s aTime Time inz(T'00.00.00');
    and then you later change the following statement where the Time
    literal has a different separator, the syntax checker may
    indicate that the literal is incorrect.
       Dcl-s bTime Time inz(T'00:00:00');
    

Local fix

  • Compile or perform a Verify action on the source to validate
    syntax checker messages.
