In RDi, remove invalid error messages when using a continuation F-Spec line.
Please remove restrictions in RDI when editing code for a RPG program. The problem occurs for the F-Spec continuation line that RDi rejects. The specification works normally in SEU.
The F-Spec and I-SPec are used to rename a record format and fields from a table definition that has a underscore in the name and the format name is longer than 10 characters.
There are many clients using older RPG code which they do not want to upgrade to ILE. (Another issue).
As we move forward, we are using tables with long names but these pose a problem for RPG 3/4 programs where we need to rename the record format and field names.
In RDi, it rejects the statements. I found that SEU works as designed and could get passed the problem that way, but it wasted a good few hours trying to resolve the issue not expecting RDi to be the problem.
