Error description

  • In Rational Developer for i (RDI) 9.6.0.8, when editing ILE RPG
    source using the the Remote Systems LPEX Editor, one can select
    a field name in the source code with the cursor, and perform a
    Refactor - Rename (ALT + SHIFT + R) to change the name of the
    field in the source. It should be replacing the old name with
    the newly entered name everywhere that field name is used in the
    source, but it fails to do the rename where the field appears as
    an argument on a FOR statement.
