Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - V 9.1
    
    If a MFS source file contains a litteral string field definition
    
    equal to 'G', then when opening it with the MFS Editor, then the
    'Design' tab is missing.
    
    Re-creation steps:
    
    1 - define a MFS file, say 'USER.MFS(MEMBER)', with the
    following lines:
    ...
    nn         DFLD  'G',POS=(002,080),ATTR=(NUM,PROT,HI)
    ...
    2 - open that file with the MFS Editor, the Design tab is
    missing.
    3 - replace 'G' by 'H', close the file and re-open it, then the
    'Design' tab is present.
