Sorry - I got it resolved! Ye olde COBOL programmer -- Joan McCready -----Original Message----- From: McCready, Joan [mailto:Joan.McCready@metaltekint.com] Sent: Thursday, November 02, 2000 2:32 PM To: MAPICS-List (E-mail) Subject: Product Structure files (BOM) and RPG programs Hi, all! I have been tearing my hair out this morning trying to write a couple of simple RPG programs to update the component item "quantity per" for parent items that match certain search criteria. We've got several hundred items that match the criteria and about an equal number of items that do not match the criteria, so that rules out (I think) using the mass replace BOM component routines. (Besides, I'm changing the quantity of the same item, not substituting a new item for the old one.) And I definately do not want to go through each BOM by hand! Anyway, I've done this sort of "clean up" RPG program before on other MAPICs files and never had a problem. I found the logicals I think I should use (PSTDTLL5 for the EPDM BOM file and PSTRUCLA for the PDM BOM file). If I just start at the beginning of the file and read through it, my programs work, but they read every record trying to find the "match." So I tried to add a "SETLL" or "CHAIN" to the CITEM that I want to change to begin the sequential read through the files. When I try to compile the RPG, I get a QRG7070 error message "The KLIST is invalid with the specified file." In the compile report, the diagnostic message is "KLIST not valid with Pgm-Described or Non-Keyed Ext-Described File." Yet these ARE keyed logical files - if I print the file record layout report for them out of CAS, they show the key; if I go into them using DFU, they are keyed and I can "jump" to my beginning record. What is going wrong here???? Anyone??
