Error description

  • This is an Internal APAR opened for a defect reported thru the
    RFE system:  RFE28212 - Sort option in screen designer adding
    problem info to referenced fields.
    
    After using the sort option on the DDS source screen, fields
    that were moved that pick up their length, data type or
    decimals from a database reference, have those values hard
    coded in the field's DDS.
    If the referenced field definitions in the database are
    changed, the moved DSPF/PRTF fields will not no longer pick up
    the changes. In general, sorting fields should not change
    the source that is generate for each field.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Sort option in Screen/Report designer   *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    After using the sort option on the DDS source screen, fields
    that were moved that pick up their length, data type or
    decimals from a database reference, have those resolved values
    generated into the field's DDS source.  While this does not
    cause an immediate problem, if the referenced field definitions
    in the database are changed, the moved DSPF/PRTF fields will
    no longer pick up the changes.
    
    In general, sorting fields should not change the source that
    is generated for each field.
    
    This problem is fixed in RDi 9.0.
