Data Decimal Error when call EXTOL External Call


Scenario:

Inbound 850 map error when calling an EXTOL External Call.

Issue:

Data decimal error occurred when calling an RPGLE program. Not much information is provided except for statement number in RPGLE program.

Interactive job log message:


Decimal data error.
Function check. MCH1202 unmonitored by EXT055 at statement 0000000383,
Decimal-data error occurred (C G D F).

Additional Interactive job log message:


Message . . . . : Decimal-data error occurred (C G D F).
Cause . . . . . : RPG procedure EXT055 in program EXTOLVRFM/EXT055 found a
decimal-data error at statement 383. A packed or zoned value does not
contain valid numeric data. A digit and/or sign is not valid.

Resolution:

1. Review current inbound transactions to see which inbound 850 process is currently in Sched/Trans.

2. Recomplile program EXT055.. By re-compiling program into QTEMP, I was able to determine what was actually occurring at statement 0000000383.
