  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • CLPPlus may behave erratically when the substitution character
    "&" immediately follows a capital "O". Depending upon the usage
    it may report a syntax error, or generate incorrect output. For
    example:
    
    SQL> DEFINE SYS_DATE=20121012
    
    SQL> show escape
    escape OFF
    
    SQL> spool SERVICEINFO&&SYS_DATE..txt
    
    SQL> select 1 from dual;
    
              1
    -----------
              1
    
    SQL> spool off;
    
    SQL> host dir SERVICE*
     Volume in drive D is Data
     Volume Serial Number is 18D0-8D0B
    
     Directory of D:\
    
    10/30/2012  01:09 PM                51 SERVICEINF&20121012.txt
    
    
    Note the above filename. The commands should create
    'SERVICEINFO20121012.txt'
    

Local fix

  • Modify your CLPPlus commands so that '&' does not immediately
    follow 'O'
