APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The following extended rule causes TX32.exe to crash
    strdate(#SYS_DATE, "%Y%m%d%", s);
    This is an invalid date format and should be:
    strdate(#SYS_DATE, "%Y%m%d", s);
    Still this should not crash TX32.exe but throw a translation
    error.
    

Local fix

    Circumvention:
