I just went through a few hours of unnecessary time wasting, thanks to insufficient source help for DDS. I was trying to find out how to require a field to be mandatory entry on one of my screens. I found the "CHECK(ME)" keyword through the DDS source help through WDSC, great. I then went through a few hours of hell trying to figure out why it wouldn't work. Through WDSC source help, the description for the 'CHECK keyword says: Use this keyword to perform the following functions, depending on the parameter values specified: ...and then lists a bunch of parameters without describing any of them. I did get a little more info from "CHGINPDFT", but not enough to figure out what was wrong. Finally out of frustration I went to theV5R2 help online and found the DDS reference there has 13 pages of text for the "CHECK" keyword fully describing all the parameters and how and why I needed to use DSPATR(MDT) and (ND) to resolve my problem. Apparently someone in the "WDSC Source Help Dept." decide that those other 12 pages weren't necessary! Gee, thanks! Richard L.
