From: Darren Strong
I have a record format defined in my DDS. I copy/paste that format within
the source, so that I can name it something else, but during the copy it
seems that the designer is removing some of my source records. I also see
it placing more comment text within the middle of my source, in addition
to the comment stuff that is at the end of the source. This additional
comment section isn't necessarily an issue, except that its an indication
that the error is occurring. I've tried to edit the source with just
LPEX, but I can't seem to open the source without the designed getting
involved. I'm actually considering falling back on SEU, which won't try to
help me by categorizing source so much.
Anyone know why this is happening or a good work around?
The old CODE DSU utility had various record format controls which allowed
such functions as copy, paste, duplicate, rename, etc.
Unfortunately, many of these simple "usability" controls are missing from
Screen/Print Designer in RDi. (At least, I can't find them!) So, the only
solution is to resort to editing the source code. We could submit an RFE,
but I suspect it would attract very little support since DDS and
green-screen are regarded as obsolete.
Incidentally, you CAN elect to open DSPF/PRTF source with LPEX; either
change the File Association preference, or just right-click member > OPEN
WITH > LPEX Editor
