Local fix

Problem summary

  • In the RDz BMS Map editor when creating a Label with an Initial
    Value that contains a double quote, the Source is incorrectly
    updated to include two double quotes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The RDz BMS Map editor contains special handling for single
    quotes and ampersands, but erroneously contained similar special
    handling for double quotes as well.
    
    The special handling was put in place to assist users with the
    following CICS TS requirement regarding special characters
    within initial values for BMS labels: Surround initial values by
    single quote marks. If you need a single quote within your text,
    use two successive single quotes (the assembler removes the
    extra one). Ampersands also have special significance to the
    assembler, and you use the same technique: use two ampersands
    where you want one, and the assembler removes the extra.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
