Deliver - RMODBB /RPTDEF transaction, Invalid keyword DTYPE


Article ID: 240324


Updated On:




After the recent View/Deliver upgrade to V14.0, a RMODBB function (to copy the production Deliver database data to a test Deliver database) fails with CC=16.

The message displayed is "Invalid Keyword Type DTYPE".


Release : 14.0

Component : Deliver


Deliver 12.2 was the last release to use the RMODBB /RPTDEF field DTYPE:

 Distribution identifier type for dynamic report

The name of the field was changed, in Deliver 14.0, to RDTYPE.

Based on the //DATA DD file sent by the client, as all of the transactions had a RDTYPE field of "D", but as the transactions were doing either adding or updating (and no deletion), it was suggested that the client change their /RPTDEF transaction field from "DTYPE=(106,1)" to "RDTYPE=(106,1)".

The change was successful.
