I pasted your source into my Rdi and it worked fine.
Which version of Rdi are you using?
It needs to be 9.0.1 or later.

From the manual, these are both valid:
DCL-S salary PACKED(5 : 2);
DCL-S age PACKED(3);
I would also question if you have the correct PTFs applied.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] What is wrong with with definition
I started playing around with "totally free" and I was defining a
standalone variable like:
dcl-s xCmlCl# packed(9);
I also tried ...packed(9:0); which did not work either.
I'm starting at position 8.
Its generating an error and when I highlight it it says "Unexpected Token"
I'm sure its something really stupid but even after reading Jon Paris'
article I still can't figure this out.
