no reason to bother REXX with traces
what is that You do not understand in the message You received ???

and in the explanation given You by Robert ???

fix the damn panel providing the appropriate <AREA> definition as required by ISPF

search the manuals in the link I posted for AREA and You will find all the info needed
to fix Your problems,
how to specify a dynamic area and the relative examples
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

Are you expecting (hoping?) that someone is just going to write code for you?

We are here to help but not actually do the work for you?

After reading the info mentioned, what have you tried? Just thinking about it will not change it. When you try something that does not work, you need to post what you tried and what happened.

Hopefully, you understand that the immediate problem is your panel. If you try things that are Not fixing the panel, the problem will continue.
Hope this helps,

You defined a vertical bar as a attribute character for a dynamic area and using the attribute character has certain requirements (read the manual, or even just read the message you received). You have used it in several places, such as the ZDATA01 line. You need to fix all occurrences.
