  • PG97002 - 2012/12/03 - Requires OS/400 V5R4 or later and ProGen 9.7. Addresses a "Name or indicator not defined" compile error on a record format name - most likely an RNF7030 on CLRS01@@. This update also prevents the background getting cleared when a lookup window is called. (FS#12808, FS#11123). NOTE: Prior to running this update you will need to run this command: CHGOBJOWN OBJ(GN#LIB/GN#G05) OBJTYPE(*PGM) NEWOWN(QPGMR)
  • PG97004 - 2013/01/24 - Requires OS/400 V5R4 or later and ProGen 9.7. Addresses an issue where unlocking ProGen on very large systems would fail with an array index error. (FS#14388)
  • PG97005 - 2013/05/09 - Requires OS/400 V5R4 or later and ProGen 9.7. Addresses an issue where there was an array index error in GN#UWDW (FS#15854)

Release 9.60 Updates

You must be at release 9.60 to apply the following update and at V5R3 or later.

  • PG96001 - 2011/11/08 - Resolves an issue where long EVAL operations were not being split across lines correctly.
  • PG96002 - 2011/12/01 - Resolves an issue where a lock is being generated in Factor 1 for the LDA in a Style F program when additional data areas are defined in the program.

Release 9.60 Enhancements - 2011/08/23

  • Resolved issue where the transfer of a definition from one environment to another caused the CMP process to go into MSGW status.
  • Resolved issue where option 13 was not listing referenced objects.
  • The installation now retains the RPG source files in GN#LIB.
  • Current version is now reflected correctly in data areas and message files.
  • Resolved issue with CPF5218 when loading an empty subfile list.
  • Resolved issue where the D spec for a timestamp was missing in the source.
  • Generation command ZCRTOBJ now points to the environment library in order to find the validation module master file.

  • PG95004 - 2009/09/02 - Requires OS/400 V5R1 or later. Resolves a problem where, upon moving a block of fields where several had conditional attributes, if any of the fields in the block was moved to the exact PREVIOUS location occupied by another of the fields in the block, the conditional attributes would be stripped from all the fields moved in the block and attached to the last field. You would be most likely to run into this when moving a set of fields directly up or down.

Release 9.50 Enhancements

  • Support for V6R1
  • Fix for installation issue in some systems due to an erroneous CCSID value in a file used during the update process

  • PG90002 - 2006/12/19 - Requires OS/400 V5R1 or later. Will now generate code correctly at *AP01 when using a DATCVT and generating to *RGP400. This code was being generated out of order.

  • PG90004 - 2007/05/22 - Requires OS/400 V5R1 or later. Resolves issue when trying to change library reference for a file using ZCHGDBF for a specific definition and the validation would not allow the user to rename the file.
