Error description

  • In ILE RPG outline view, externally described fields renamed via
    PREFIX and I Specs do not show up under the Fields category.
    If the renamed fields are referenced, the references do not show
    up properly.
    

Local fix

  • Switch to using the old static outline view by unchecking the
    'Update the Outline view when text is changed in the editor'
    preference under Remote Systems->Remote Systems LPEX Editor->
    IBM i Parsers->ILE RPG.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: RD Power users who edit RPGLE source using   *
    *                 the live outline view.                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: RPGLE live outline view does not show   *
    *                      the effect of the PREFIX keyword.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Application of the PREFIX keyword to field names of an
    externally described file in an RPG-ILE program is not taken
    into account by the Outline view.
    
    If fields from 2 files have the same names, and 1 of the files
    has a PREFIX keyword, the prefixed fields will not show up
    under the Fields category.
    
    If prefixed fields are referenced, the references do not show
    up under the file and record.
    
    This problem is fixed in RDi 9.0
