Re:Programming Question/ Bug?

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Aug 22, 2007
One of my programmers asked me this question. I am not sure why this
happens.

Field P-INVOICE-NO is defined as Pic X(14). Code in the ADS program
checks if the field contains zeros using any of the following lines of
code:

IF P-INVOICE-NO OF IAVMRPPV = 0
IF P-INVOICE-NO OF IAVMRPPV = ZEROS
IF P-INVOICE-NO OF IAVMRPPV = ZEROES

If the field is all zeroes, it executes an error message, as it should.
But if the field is changed to 0A (or any 0 and alpha combo) and enter
is pressed - the screen does not recognize that the field now contains
something other than 0, or zeros, or zeroes and still produces the error
message. This is happening in programs that are recently changed. We are
running IDMS V16.0 Service Pack 4.

I have searched Support Connect and have found no mention of such a
problem. Has anyone heard of or experienced this? How did you fix it?
The programmer got around this by checking for 0 in every position of
the field, but the code above is used in several of our programs and has
us concerned.

Thanks for your help.

"I turned on the TV, and there indeed was Bonds basking in the adulation. Everything was going the way he probably dreamed it would, until the post-game press conference was well under way and the elephant in the room could no longer be ignored. A reporter asked Bonds if he had a message for Greg Anderson, his former trainer who was sitting in prison less than 40 miles away for refusing to testify in the ongoing investigation of steroid use by major league baseball players.

Bonds' expression turned to stone. ""Why are we in this conversation?"" he asked. ""Just another negative question. I'm not going to get into that.""

You probably know where I'm going with this, Charles. As you're no doubt very much aware, just one week later, there was another person sitting in prison while a former associate was living the high life.

That's right, Charles, I'm talking about Sanjay Kumar, your protégé and successor, who pleaded guilty to those accounting fraud charges, and who entered a minimum-security correctional facility in New Jersey on Tuesday to begin paying the 12-year price for his misdeeds.

So as Sanjay languishes in prison, Charles, and you continue to enjoy the good life among the Long Island elite, let me ask you: Do you have a message for Sanjay?

I can just see that icy stare of yours, Charles. Of course you have no message for Sanjay. What could you possibly say to him at this point?

So, Charles, I have a message for you: This isn't right. Sanjay is guilty of some devastatingly poor judgment, but you're the one who shot the illegal performance- enhancing drugs into CA. The Special Litigation Committee of CA's board of directors said it has found that ""fraud pervaded the entire CA organization at every level and was embedded in CA's culture, as instilled by Mr. Wang, almost from the company's inception."" Your fingerprints are on the needle, Charles.

CA is still waiting for the court to determine whether the company can sue you to recover the millions of dollars in damages you've caused. Hopefully, it'll get the go-ahead, and you'll have to answer for what you've done to CA's customers, employees and shareholders. May that be the message Sanjay receives, Charles. And may it be soon.

Re: Vary offline immediate
"SHUTDOWN IMM waited for a reply.
I'm wondering if that hung you up
If you add NOPompt, making it SHUDOWN IMM NOP , that may help.

One of our production users has had problems with the ""vary area offline
immediate"" command. On two occasions, it did not work immediately. The
""immediate"" parameter causes DCMT to wait until the area actually goes
offline, rather than returning a ""pending"" message as it does otherwise.
These commands were submitted via UCFBTCH, and the batch job eventually
timed out while waiting for the DCMT command to complete.

Unfortunately, no one got a look at the CV at the time to see what the
holdup was. Since this problem results in late-night calls, the users
are natually reluctant to try it again for debugging purposes. Has
anyone else had experiences where the ""vary area offline immediate""
command went into a wait state?

Re: Vary offline immediate
"Kay,
Any chance there was a long running batch job that took awhile to
rollback? The area would not go offline until the rollout was complete.
