I have a map that was created circa 1998 (or thereabouts) that instead of referencing DDM fields, or in-line program fields, uses dummy names on the map and then match parameters by the location of the field in the Input statement in the program. In other words, the input statement looks something like this:
INPUT USING MAP ‘NICSMAP1’ #PARM1 #PARM2 #PARM3 #PARM4
Then the map has fields called IFELD001, IFELD002, IFELD003, IFELD004 and they match the input statment by location in the parm list. It works just fine, as it has for more than a decade.
My problem is not with this per se, but I’m trying to add CV’s to only a few of the fields on the map. These will be marked as (AD=N) depending various conditions. I’m coming up against a format conflict error after having added the CV’s to the fields on the map. I tried adding the CV to the maps parameter list in the program using a couple of different ways (CV=#CV, etc.), but to no avail.
Hopefully the description of my problem is clear and someone can help. Thanks!
