Hi Jon,

The conflict of the record format and file name was indeed what caused the issue.

I now added RCDFMT to my SQL DDL statement and it compiles fine now.

I did need a replace to keep the rest of the program the samen;

01 MYFILE-RECORD.
COPY DD-ALL-FORMATS OF ENTRY REPLACING MYFILER BY MYFILE-REC.

This way I can MOVE TO FIELD OF MYFILE-REC.

@Basil, yes the EXEC SQL BEGIN DECLARE SECTION END-EXEC is in the program but it wasn't mentioned here.

Kind regards,
Paul

There is no real difference between a DDL and DDS defined file in this context.

What did you call the file? The biggest difference between a DDL and DDS table is that by default the DDL table will have a record format with the same name as the file. So if you have used the file's real name you'll have a collision between the generated 05 MYFILE and the actual file name.

I see nothing else wrong with the generated record.

Hi Jon,

This is wat is being generated;

01 MYFILE-REC.
COPY DD-ALL-FORMATS OF MYFILE.
05 MYFILE-RECORD PIC X(35).
* I-O FORMAT:MYFILE FROM FILE MYFILE OF LIBRARY MYLIB
*
05 MYFILE REDEFINES MYFILE-RECORD.
06 USER PIC X(8).
06 DATW PIC S9(7).
06 APPN PIC X(1).
06 ENTN PIC S9(3).
06 TPRN PIC X(10).
06 TENT PIC X(1).
06 CADI PIC S9(1).
06 APPNLI PIC X(1).
06 ENTNLI PIC S9(3).

Maybe this is caused by the fact that it is an SQL table... I'll try to define another record-format.

Kind regards,
Paul

What are the actual generated lines it is complaining about?

?Hi,


I'm trying to include the record layout of my SQL table as follows;


01 MYFILE-REC.
COPY DD-ALL-FORMATS OF MYFILE.

But I keep getting compile errors on it ?

LNC1203 Expected data-name/FILLER after level-number; found 'MYFILE'. Data description entry ignored.
LNC0239 PICTURE clause cannot be specified for group item 'MYFILE-RECORD'. PICTURE clause ignored.?

Am I missing something stupid ?

Kind regards,
Paul
