Have issues with zoned numeric fields after v7r1 upgrade? Published by: Chris Proctor on 21 May 2015 view comments(4)

Good afternoon

I'm running into somthing really weird while debugging a program. I retrieve a record from a file using CHAIN(E) and the record has data in zoned numeric fields, but when I display the field in debug immediately after the chain, the value is zero. This appears to be only happening with zoned numeric fields. Pack fields are displaying just fine. We just upgraded our test box to v7r1 and I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

I'm not sure if it's upgrade related or not, but I've never seen this before. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
