Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z (RDz): RDZ client 9.5.1 does not
    correctly parse the 'IS NUMERIC' clause.
    
    For example, in the program you have the following lines:
               IF A-TEST NOT = ZERO
               AND (B-TEST (C-TEST)) IS NUMERIC
                 ADD 1 TO A-TEST.
    The following error is displayed regarding NUMERIC clause:
    "POSITIVE" expected instead of this input
    

Local fix

  • Simply adjust the location of the parenthesis while maintaining
    functional equivalence.
    For example:
               IF A-TEST NOT = ZERO
               AND (B-TEST (C-TEST) IS NUMERIC)
                 ADD 1 TO A-TEST.
