What Classifies a Field as RDML?
All working fields defined in RDMLX application code are classified as either RDML or RDMLX. If a field meets the following rules, it is an RDML field. Otherwise it is an RDMLX field.
- Field does not have the ASQN attribute.
- TYPE(*CHAR) LENGTH(n), where n <= 256.
- TYPE(*DEC) LENGTH(n) DECIMALS(d), where 1 <= n <= 30 and 0 <= d <= 9
- TYPE(x) LENGTH(*REFFLD) REFFLD(#A), where x is *CHAR, *DEC, or *REFFLD and field #A is an RDML data dictionary field.
