PM52710: Open Declaration is greyed out

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If the realtime syntax finds an error, then Open Declaration is
    grayed out.  This syntax is allowed by the COBOL compiler,
    therefore it should be allowed by the LPEX real time COBOL
    editor in RD/z.
    CONFIGURATION SECTION
    OBJECT-COMPUTER.
    SOURCE-COMPUTER.
    

Local fix

  • Reverse the order of the OBJECT and SOURCE lines.
    

Problem summary

  • The COBOL parser for the RDz editors required SOURCE-COMPUTER to
    be before OBJECT-COMPUTER in the CONFIGURATION SECTION of edited
    source code. The reverse order, OBJECT-COMPUTER before
    SOURCE-COMPUTER, is allowed by local syntax check and reverse
    syntax check in the CONFIGURATION SECTION.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The COBOL parser for the RDZ editors has been changed to allow
    OBJECT-COMPUTER before SOURCE-COMPUTER in the CONFIGURATION
    SECTION of edited source code.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.3.1 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
