Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5.1
    
    When remote codepage for a PDS is setup to be 1142 some Danish
    national characters, when used in variable names in EXEC CICS,
    SQL or DLI statements cause the PLI real time syntax checker to
    flag the following error:
    '.' expected rather than this input.
    
    For example, if a variable has a name of A1.L?NGDE then
    it will be flagged with the warning:
    Unable to resolve reference to A1.L?NGDE
    
    You may see a different error depending on where the reference
    to the variable with the name occurs.
    
    These are Danish National characters:
    
    Windows chars: A-E ligature:    ? , ?
    Windows chars: Nordic 0 Slash:  ? , ?
    Windows chars: Nordic A ring:   ? , ?
    

Local fix
