Allow SQL Precompiler to handle longer names of fields
It must be possible to use long names of fields/attributes defined in qualified data structures when building applications using modern free format RPG with embedded SQL.
When using names for fields/attributes defined in qualified data structures there is a limit of how long names the SQL Pre-compiler can handle when these fields are used in the embedded SQL statements. This leads to strange compile errors that are very hard to understand.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
