I am trying the following code and getting error RNQ0115. The value in both
fields is blank. Can someone shed some light as to why?

Lets see:

1) Data structures (and their sub-fields) are initialised to blanks unless explicit initialisation is performed.

2) Varying-length fields have a 2-byte integer length at the start.

Therefore the 2-byte length is initialised to X'4040' which is 16448 which is a lot bigger than than the declared length of 450. That is exactly what the message RNQ0115 told you.

The proper fix is to correctly initialise data structures by specifying the INZ keyword on the DS declaration. This is simply good programming practice and should be done on all data structure definitions.

Simon Coulter.
