Error description

  • IGYDS0197-E "11" was a name that started with an underscore.
    If a DBCS data-name starts with an underscore, the error message
    is wrongly seen as a number, perhaps the number is the column.
    The error message should display the data-name in error, not
    its column number.
    IGYDS0197-E is wrongly given for a data-name ending in an
    underscore. It is permitted to end a data-name with underscore.
     Please see APAR PM90417.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Enterprise COBOL V4.2 users with DBCS        *
    *                 character versions of underscore in          *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: There are 2 possible incorrect          *
    *                      diagnostic messages that could be       *
    *                      received.  One is if a user name starts *
    *                      or ends with a DBCS underscore:         *
    *                      IGYDS0197-E "11" was a name that        *
    *                      started with an underscore.             *
    *                      (The error message has a column number  *
    *                      as insert, not the DBCS name)           *
    *                      The second error is that there should   *
    *                      not be any mesage for a trailing        *
    *                      DBCS underscore at all.                 *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the provided PTF.                      *
    *                                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The compiler was incorrectly checking for DBCS underscore at the
    end of user names, and was putting the column number in the
    message for leading DBCS undersacore instead of the user name in
    error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The compiler was changed to diagnose DBCS underscores only at
    the beginning of user words, and to use the user word as a
    message insert instead of the column number.
