Error description

  • This problem shows in RDP 8.5.1 (live outline) and was
    previously OK in RDP 8.0.3.1 (static outline).  In the new
    version the live content assist does not correctly display
    the return value type when it is defined LIKE a field in a data
    structure template.
    

Local fix

  • To use the static outline in RDP 8.5 (and later) uncheck the
    checkbox "Update the outline view when text is changed in the
    editor" in the ILE RPG parser preferences.

    In an RPGLE member, if the return value of a procedure
    interface is defined with LIKE using a qualified name, like
