Error with MYLIB function

I created the following function successfully in green screen STRSQL:

(DateIn DATE)
RETURN Date(DateIn - Day(DateIn) Days + 1 Day)

When I tried to create the same function (after dropping it) through OpsNav GUI interface I received the error:

Token SQL was not valid. Valid tokens: C CL COBOL COBOLLE FORTRAN PLI RPG RPGLE JAVA.

Message ID: SQL0104

Cause . . . . . : A syntax error was detected at token SQL. Token SQL is not a valid token. A partial list of valid tokens is C CL COBOL COBOLLE FORTRAN PLI RPG RPGLE JAVA. This list assumes that the statement is correct up to the token. The error may be earlier in the statement, but the syntax of the statement appears to be valid up to this point.

We were not able to reproduce the problem when we tried it. It sounds like a bug. I would suggest applying the latest Database Group PTF on the server and installing the latest service pack for iSeries access. If the problem persists, report the problem to IBM support.
