          (NOTE: Many other attributes have this same issue)
     (12) Try entering filter value "0000:00:00.123456" (format
          HHHH:MM:SS.ssssss with "SIX" decimal places).
     (13) Only five decimals fit and the following error is
    returned:
              EYUVE0284E  Invalid filter value specified. Please
              enter a valid value for filter type, 'S390 store clock
              intervals (INTVSTCK)'.
    .
    The store clock fields should accept up to 6 decimal places.

    ****************************************************************
    A logic error exists in EYU0VODT (VODT - WUI Time/Date Data
    Formatting Routines) in the routine that checks whether output
    data will fit into an output buffer, resulting in the reported
    EYUVE0285E message.
    
    A logic error exists in EYU0VE2A (VE2A - WUI EDITOR:
    edit_view_link_filter_data) in determining the maximum length of
    an attribute, and a logic error in EYU0VOQA (VOQA - Routines to
    convert data formats for CPSM WUI) which sets the maximum output
    length to 15 for date/time attributes, results in filters being
    truncated at 15 characters.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified EYU0VE2A with a new routine to determine the maximum
    length of the attribute.
    
    Corrected the logic error in EYU0VODT that was checking whether
    output data will fit into an output buffer.
    
    Modified EYU0VOQA to allow for a maximum output length of 24 for
    date/time attributes.
