Issue:
QREVIEW has dead unprotected fields on the left hand side of the screen - fix available.
Environment:
CA IDMS, all supported releases.
Cause:
In 2008, a DICTNAME column was added to each line of the QREVIEW screen (problem ADSLIV/68).
This field was added as UNPROTECTED and with no delimiting skip byte at the end.
It was placed at the extreme right hand side of the screen, so the wraparound effect meant that on the left hand side of all but the first line, there were dead unprotected input fields.
Typing characters into those dead fields have no impact.
You need to tab or move the cursor to the third column where the real input field is, and type the desired action there (S or D).
Resolution:
As of December 17, 2018, a test fix is available - ST06693.
It will be published within a few weeks.
