    RFSNUM17 field is prepared by CVD/MVC/ED at #03380000-03400000

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of IMS V9 Database Surveyor utility    *
    *                 (DFSPRSUR) may be affected.                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: User noticed incorrect number of        *
    *                      segments in the output of Database      *
    *                      Surveyor utility.  The correct number   *
    *                      is 107191 but was displayed as 7191.    *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: INSTALL CORRECTIVE SERVICE FOR APAR/PTF      *
    ****************************************************************
    The number of segments was truncated because inadequate numbers
    of digits were allocated during the ED (edit) instruction.
    Only 5 digits were allocated for the field RFSNUM17 in module
    DFSPRSRF, which holds the number of segments in zoned format.
    In the event the number of segments has 6 digits, the leading
    digit is truncated.  Furthermore, any 0's in the immediate
    subsequent digits will not be displayed.
    
    The field RFSNUM17 should be changed to hold larger than 99999
    segments.
    

Problem conclusion

  • GEN:
    KEYWORDS:
    
    *** END IMS KEYWORDS ***
    Module DFSPRSRF has been changed to correct the problem.
    Field RFSNUM17 that holds the number of segments has been
    changed to support up to x7FFFFFFF segments.
