Issue/Introduction

Problem: 

During program assembly getting the following error

** ASMA065E Unknown type - GLnnn

 

Environment: 

Easytrieve 11.6; PanSQL 2.4

  

Cause:

If using the DB2 data type BIGINT CA PANSQL PTFs RO77666 and RO78062 are required. These have changed some of CA Easytrieve's dummy variable definitions from CL to GL which are used by DBCS (Double Byte Character Set).

  

Resolution:

Add DBCS to the parameter in the assembly EXEC DD statement: 

//ASMSTEP EXEC PGM=ASMA90,PARM='OBJECT,NODECK,RENT,LIST,DBCS',...

 

Additional Information: 

Graphic(n)  -  DS GLm  -   m is expressed in bytes, n is the number of double-byte characters. 1<=n<=127.
