RE: OPNQRYF QRYSLT CPF9899 Al Mac



fixed

Try enclosing the string values, particularly the one with trailing
blanks, in double quotes, when build range.

CHGVAR VAR(&SELECT) VALUE(&SELECT *BCAT '*AND RPRF +
= %RANGE(' *CAT &PRF1 *BCAT &PRF2 *CAT ')')

CHGVAR VAR(&SELECT) VALUE(&SELECT *BCAT '*AND RPRF +
= %RANGE("' *CAT &PRF1 *CAT '" "' *CAT &PRF2
*CAT '")')

Subject: OPNQRYF QRYSLT CPF9899 Al Mac

My OPNQRYF statement is failing on CPF9899
"Missing Operator in Expression in QRYSLT parameter"

I am hoping that it jumps out to someone knowlegeable with this stuff,
where MEKLUTZ has el typo, overlooked something obvious, or something
missing from the syntax.

I don't use Open Query File often enough to be skilled at it.
I am on V5R1.

I copied this code from another CL that works, then I changed name of
file,
names of parameters, fields, tests, etc. to what was wanted, and in the
process, probably missed some nuances with syntax. Key fields are
transcribed from RARL94 DDS.

OVRDBF FILE(RARL94) SHARE(*YES)

CHGVAR VAR(&RI) VALUE('RI') /* Al not yet know +
other than RANGE lingo */

/* stuff in string of concatentations needs to be alpha format */
/* so change date from numeric YYYYMMDD to alpha equivalent */

CHGVAR VAR(&DATE1) VALUE(&P1DAT1)
CHGVAR VAR(&DATE2) VALUE(&P2DAT2)

/* we use 1st 3 characters for profit center */
/* but actual field in BPCS is 10 characters */

CHGVAR VAR(&SEVEN) VALUE(' ') /* 7 spaces */
CHGVAR VAR(&PRF1) VALUE(&P3PRF1 *CAT &SEVEN)

CHGVAR VAR(&SEVEN) VALUE('9999999') /* 7 nines */
CHGVAR VAR(&PRF2) VALUE(&P4PRF2 *CAT &SEVEN)

CHGVAR VAR(&SELECT) VALUE('RDATE = %RANGE(' *CAT +
&DATE1 *BCAT &DATE2 *CAT ')')

CHGVAR VAR(&SELECT) VALUE(&SELECT *BCAT '*AND
RPRF +
= %RANGE(' *CAT &PRF1 *BCAT &PRF2 *CAT ')')

CHGVAR VAR(&SELECT) VALUE(&SELECT *BCAT '*AND RRID +
= %RANGE(' *CAT &RI *BCAT &RI *CAT ')')

OPNQRYF FILE((RARL94)) QRYSLT(&SELECT) +
KEYFLD((RDATE) (RCOMP) (RPRF) (RCUST) +
(ARODPX) (RINVC) (ARODTP) (ARODYR))
