Help with SFLDROP, SFLFOLD Published by: WestCoastGuy on 28 Mar 2012 view comments(3)

The program I am working on is a subfile that needs two lines on the subfile record for display. When I press the  command key to do the sfldrop, I get the error message - "Not able to display the record in truncated format". I get this message when running the RPGLE version, but when I run legacy written programs with the fold and drop, the display works and toggles between displaying  1 line and 2 lines with no issues.  There is no wrap around on the fields from one display line to the other.

Why am I getting that message?


Thanks in advance !
