APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
An AFPDS spooled file fails to load. It fails with message
RDR2798 - Routine QrlmGetSpoolData returned error -1. Exiting.

The Add Report (ADDRPTOND) command fails with message ARS1114E -
Unable to read from offset nn for length nnnn.

A very complex multi-key report with 47 indexes fails to index
correctly.  Extra index rows are created.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE70448 :
-----------------------------
The spooled file used AFPDS named groups and TLEs.  The name of
one of the named groups was larger than the program could
handle.  An internal variable was overwritten, which caused the
error. The problem is now fixed.

The AFPDS spooled file only had one page. Because of this, it
had both a BDT tag and an EDT tag in the buffer along with the
contents of the page. This was not handled correctly. The
problem is now fixed.

Multi-key relationships were not determined correctly when a
field had a default value defined in the indexer parameters and
that field was used in an index that has
ALLOWMULTIPLEVALUES=YES. The field was not found, which caused
the default to be used, resulting in extra index row(s) being
created. The relationships are now correctly determined so the
correct number of index rows are generated. However, it is
recommended that a field which is used in an index with
ALLOWMULTIPLEVALUES=YES not have a default specified in the
indexer parameters. Instead, use a default value on the Load
Information tab of the application definition. Default values
can cause a problem when used with indexes that have
ALLOWMULTIPLEVALUES=YES. This is because the default is only
used if the field is not found, which means it has no page
location. This causes the index that uses the field with the
defaulted value to be associated with the last row.
