Hi Kyle,

I was able to reproduce it also on Windows; please contact IBM support so we can fix the issue. I'd prefer to add better reporting to the Failed initial conditions message also.

It's related to not being able to find global specs. Once there is one, the feature works fine.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Refactor -> Extract Constant Fails

External: Pause and review the sender's email address, any URLs before clicking links, opening attachments, or following requests. When in doubt, contact the Service Desk.

An exception is through with a message of "Failed initial conditions".

Here is my source code:


ctl-opt nomain option(*srcstmt);

/copy vdm001r_h

/copy vdm001dr_h

dcl-proc viewMenu export;

dcl-ds output likeds(output_t);

dou output.exitRequested;


if not output.exitRequested;


when output.optionSelected = '1';





I am trying to extract the '1' to a constant; I will note this is an iproject. The source is on my machine and remote reconciled to the server. I am also on a mac running rdi

Does anyone else have an issue with this?
