I would also question if you have the correct PTFs applied.

I don't have a back level machine to test against. Suppose I have two
machines. One is at 5.4 and the other is at 7.2. I fire up RDi and
edit RPG source on both machines, typing a valid dcl-s line. Will Lpex
throw a syntax error only on the 5.4 member?

I thought that the syntax checkers are part of RDi, but then I
remembered that CL gets validated by calls to IBM i so now I don't know...

I started playing around with "totally free" and I was defining a

I also tried ...packed(9:0); which did not work either.

I'm starting at position 8.

I'm sure its something really stupid but even after reading Jon Paris'
article I still can't figure this out.
