Thanks Chuck
I didn't catch that this was pure RPG.
I tested it and I see the problem you are referring to.
This is worth a PMR as our lexer is confused. It is parsing an expression
and sees an And and assumes that it is an operation, not an operand. RPG's
lack of reserved words make life more difficult for the tooling :-)
Thanks for catching and isolating it.

I have a project that consists of four RPGLE and three SQLRPGLE

The outline is available for all but one source member which is a

It's occurring in two places in the code and both are where an SQL
string is being composed similar to the one shown below.

String_SQL = Select + Where +
QUOTE + And + Q_TXCHGDT + Today;

Not a show stopper as the program verifier shows no errors and it
compiles. Just odd that the outline for this one program is not

<<SNIP>> the dynamic outline parser is independent of the program
verifier and compiler and does not have deep SQL understanding so it
is getting confused with SQL reserved words as it tries to find the
end of the SQL statement, so it can get back to RPG parsing.

I've inserted the OP just above that most recent reply. I am
confused about the most recent reply, because the code shown is purely
RPG, no SQL at all. That is, the pure RPG assignment shown is little
different than the RPG string EVAL\assignment expression: X=Y+Z;

So, there would be no SQL parsing taking place, from which the
compiler code can "get back to RPG parsing"; i.e. the compiler parsing
for that code-sample will begin and end as RPG parsing.?
