RDI: Outline should show length and number of decimals for fields defined with REFFLD()
When editing DSPF, PRTF and Physical files where the field is defined using the REFFLD keyword, the outline just shows the field that is used in the REFFLD keyword. It would be a great help if it could show the length and number of decimals of the referenced field.
For example if a field is defined like this:
In the outline you can only see that MYFLD is defined using REFFLD for MYREFFLD.
It would be nice if the dimension of MYREFFLD is shown too. for example (30) or (9,2) for text or numeric fields.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
