Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All FM/IMS Batch Edit and Batch Browse       *
    *                 users.                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 1. FM/IMS ignores the GE keyword when   *
    *                      it is specified on a VIEWPOSN call.     *
    *                                                              *
    *                      2. An undocumented extension to the     *
    *                      REPLIMS and ISRTIMS call syntax allows  *
    *                      you to specify multiple SET clauses in  *
    *                      the one call. However, FM/IMS does not  *
    *                      always correctly process the field      *
    *                      assignment statements within these      *
    *                      clauses when multiple SET clauses are   *
    *                      specified.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    2. According to the REPLIMS and ISRTIMS call syntax diagrams in
    the FM/IMS User Guide and Reference, all the field assignment
    statements should be specified in the one SET clause. However,
    FM/IMS has always tolerated the specification of multiple SET
    clauses, so it should correctly process the field assignment
    statements when more than one SET clause is specified.
    

Problem conclusion

  • FM/IMS has been modified to correct these problems.
