Good Day

An interesting gotcha that kept me occupied for an embarrassing amount of time.

I have a SFL display file that uses 132 pos wide display. I have 2 sub files and 1 kept getting an error saying the PAGVAL() was too large. Even though they were almost identical.

After some time, I found that if there is a field that spans col 80, even if there are fields after that, it will give the PAGVAL halt.

So I changed the field to not be in that position and no halt. I suppose it is the boundary between an 80 col and 132 and may have control char.
