INVALID WHOLE NUMBER error. Please help !!

Postby hariharan_bk » Fri Aug 14, 2015 1:41 pm

Hi All,

I have developed a small rexx code which replaces the characters with the mentioned values, in a single line statement.

This is the input statement I give for the replacing the &B with 'M'

XXX&J..&A&B&C&D..CD&E&I.AT.HARI(+1)

/* I call the FUNCTION HERE */
F8=STRREP(F7,'&B','M')

/* function to replace chars */
STRREP:
FIL_STR = ARG(1)
STR1    = ARG(2)
STR2    = ARG(3)

DO FOREVER
  INTERPRET 'PARSE VAR FIL_STR PART1' "'"STR1"'" 'PART2'
  IF (FIL_STR <> PART1) THEN FIL_STR = PART1||STR2||PART2
  ELSE LEAVE
END
RETURN FIL_STR


When I run the above code, I m getting the desired result.. but an error shows up at the end of processing, which is "Invalid Whole number".

Something is passed between the call and the function, but I am unable to have this resolved. Could you please help
Many Thanks,
Harry

What did you try in order to debug your problem? Have your displayed the arguments on entry to your program and on entry to the sub-routine? Have you run with Trace enabled?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hi NicC,

Have got the issue resolved now.

Misplacement of few keywords have caused this. My apologies.
Many Thanks,
Harry
